 +====== Using Analyses (As) and Transformations (Ts) ======
 +This section gives an overview about the activation of JTransformer and its main components. It is recommended to use the //JT User// perspective when working with JTransformer (//​JTransformer//​ -> //JT User Perspective//​).
 +The perspective contains the following elements:
 +  - the [[control_center|JTransformer Control Center]],
 +  - the Package Explorer and
 +  - the Outline.
 +===== Activate JTransformer for a project =====
 +Before JTransformer can be used on a Java project, it needs to be activated. This is done by assigning the //​JTransformer Nature// to a project, select //​Configure//​ -> //Assign JTransformer Factbase// in the context menu of a project.
 +In the upcoming dialog a factbase name needs to be defined. To every factbase there is one Prolog process. It is possible to use one factbase for multiple projects. \\
 +The default name is the name of the selected project.
 +The activation of JTransformer will trigger the initial generation of the factbase for the selected project. After the generation is finished the project icon will have a green JT overlay {{:​research:​jtransformer:​tutorial:​work_nature_icon.png|}}.
 +From then on JTransformer will automatically update the factbase each time any Java source code is modified in the project.
 +===== Overview about the main components =====
 +Once JTransformer is activated for a project it is possible to load and run analyses, inspect the PEF, etc. The following table presents an overview.
 +| The [[control_center|Control Center]] is the most important view. \\ It allows enabling/​disabling of analyses, running of analyses, \\ inspecting analysis results and more. |  {{:​research:​jtransformer:​tutorial:​cc_overview.png?​450px|}} ​ |
 +| The [[viewing_results|viewing and acting on analysis results]] includes \\ the listing in the Control Center, the highlighting in the code and \\ the applying of possible quick fixes. |  {{:​research:​jtransformer:​tutorial:​cc_analysis_result_table.png?​450px|}} ​ |
 +| The [[factbase_inspector|Factbase Inspector]] offers the possibility to \\ inspect the PEFs of a factbase in a tree representation. |  {{:​research:​jtransformer:​tutorial:​fbi_overview.png?​450px|}} ​ |
 +| The [[factbase_statistics|Factbase Statistics]] view \\ shows statistics about a factbase. |  {{:​research:​jtransformer:​tutorial:​stats_overview.png?​450px|}} ​ |
 +| JTransformer allows to generate reverse engineered code \\ which is explained [[reverse_engineering|here]]. |  {{:​research:​jtransformer:​tutorial:​re_refactoring_dialog.png?​450px|}} ​  |
