Abstract : Object-oriented applications of significant size are often complex and therefore costly to maintain. Indeed, they rely on the concept of class which has low granularity with varied dependencies not always explicit. The component paradigm provides a projection space well-structured and of highest level for a better understanding through abstract architectural views. But it is possible to go further. It may also be the ultimate target of a complete process of re engineering. The end-to-end automation of this process is a subject on which literature has made very little attention. In this paper, we propose such a method to automatically transform an object-oriented application in an operational component-oriented application. We illustrate this method on a real Java application which is transformed in an operational OSGi application.
