I am a student. Currently working on a thesis project. My thesis is related to: Re-engineering a Legacy Visualization Module of Spatial Decision Support Software for Modern GIS Software.

This is a GIS tool already developed in ArcView GIS. I have to re-engineer it using ArcEngine and ArcObjects.

Is it possible?

I have everything installed on my laptop. ArcGIS Engine (licensed), ArcGIS Desktop 10 (licensed), ArcGIS Engine Runtime (licensed), ArcGIS Engine SDK(licensed).

What will be better to use? NetBeans or Eclipse. I have also installed ARcGIS Engine plugin for eclipse. But the visual editor fails i guess.

I was wondering if someone can guide me to the steps from where to begin.
