Eclipse IDE And Languages - Tools · Poster

This talk has been accepted but has not yet been assigned a time slot.

We are developing an Eclipse feature to support scenario-based reading in the code inspection process. We have created several plug-ins: a generic C++ tool chain to support browsing when source is used with various C/C++ compilers; a live differencing plug-in; and a plug-in used to create scenarios from code regions for code walkthroughs and support the code inspection itself with capabilities to mark regions inspected. In addition, we are using some plug-ins adapted from the Jupiter open source project to support Code "annotations". The poster will display information about a new, scenario-based reading technique for code inspection. It will include examples from the views provided by the plug-ins and some of the supporting tools, and show an overview of the Solaris cluster in which the plug-ins are tested. The poster display will consist of one 4ft x 3ft poster.
