    Default How does this app connect to it's backend/database?

    I was tasked with creating a mobile app for a time scheduling application. However, the only thing I have right now in terms of documentation of the backend is an old desktop app as a jar. After decompiling it I thought it would be easy to see some basic backend calls so that I could replicate them. However looking through the files I feel like the whole networking bit is missing. I assume there is some kind of xml library which connects to a database? I just can't seem to get it though.

    The closest I came in my investigations is the CommunicationManager which through the SocketManager has dependencies on some java.net.* classes (including InetSocketAddress, Proxy, Socket). I can't find any url's or other things that points to a backend being accessed though.

    I'll attach a zip file with the decompiled source and the jar file itself.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Have you tried asking the authors of the old desktop app?

    Well, that's where you should start!

    The only thing I can add here is sympathy: I'm really sorry you got stuck with that poor excuse for a 'project'.
