This paper discusses the challenges and steps required to convert a stand-alone legacy Microsoft Access-based application, in the absence of original requirements, to a web-based application with an Oracle backend and Oracle Application Express/JavaScript/JQuery frontend. The Amplifier Slab Selection (ASL) Tool provides a means to manage and track Amplifier Slabs on National Ignition Facility (NIF) beamlines. ASL generates simulations and parameter visualization charts of seated Amplifier Slabs as well as available replacement candidates to help optics designers make beamline configuration decisions. The migration process, undertaken by the NIF Shot Data Systems (SDS) team at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), included reverse-engineering functional requirements due to evolving processes and changing NIF usage patterns.
