Codecharts are a formal diagrammatic language for specifying the structure of object-oriented design patterns, frameworks, and programs. Codecharts are attractive for applications in both forward (e.g. design verification) and reverse engineering (e.g. program visualization). Although the definition of Codecharts has been adequate for these applications, there is a need to develop the language further in more precise terms. This paper outlines our work in refining the definition of Codecharts. We informally describe the concrete syntax and semantics of Codecharts, and provide a new formal abstract syntax. We conclude with a brief discussion on future work.
