Eclipse and Enterprise Open Source Plug Ins For Better Software

Worth 13 Minutes and 25 Seconds of Anyone's Time

Nigel Cheshire's Blog

The folks at Stelligent entered the brave new world of vidcasting with an interview with Levent Gurses, previewing his presentation at the Better Software Conference. Levent talks about the key Eclipse plug-ins that help track code quality metrics. In particular, he makes a couple of key observations:

  • Pick a tool based on areas of weakness - in other words, know why you are implementing a tool before you implement it.

  • Use tools on the desktop as well as in the build system. You can use PMD, for example, within Eclipse, but also within your CruiseControl build system, which allows you to aggregate the results for the whole system.

    Good stuff. Just wish I was going to be in Las Vegas next week…
