This article contains a description of the first phase of a two-phase project in computer program understanding for Service-oriented Architecture (SOA) composite applications. The first phase, which is described here, pertains to development of CARET, a prototype software tool that automates the process of generating concept maps that pertain to the structure of composite applications. CARET produces triples describing the relationships of entities contained in WSDL, BPEL, and XML Schema files. The triples can be imported into CmapTools, where they are automatically rendered into a concept map. The tool is programmatically extensible to capture any relationships of interest in such systems. In the second phase, to be reported in future work, the concept maps created in this fashion will be augmented with knowledge elicited from experts in the software system being modeled.
