Abstract This paper describes ongoing work on a domain# retargetable reverse engineering environment which is used to aid the structural understanding of large in# formation spaces. In particular# it presents a layered modeling approach to representing three classes of ar# tifacts manipulated during the reverse engineering pro# cess. The approach provides a practical and extensi# ble method of integrating existing tools and techniques into a reverse engineering environment by leveraging results from other areas# such as relational databases# hypertext# and conceptual modeling. Keywords# domain#retargetable# modeling# reverse engineering. 1 Introduction Reverse engineering technologies can be used to aid hyperstructure understanding #HSU## identifying arti# facts and understanding their structural relationships in complex information webs. HSU is an objective rather than a well#de#ned process #1#. The pre#x hy# per is used to distinguish HSU from the in#the#small activity of understanding the...
