I am a Java Programmer. I just started working on a project in which we have to migrate a Power Builder application to Java using web technologies.

In order to understand existing PB app, I am not sure where to start. I have source code and executables. There is no other documentation. I am trying to deploy PB version of application in my local machine.
I need some suggestion and also what tools should I use to open the source code?
