I have found reason 531 to be glad I switched to developing in CFEclipse. Its name is Jupiter. It’s a code review tool for Eclipse. I find myself in complete disbelief, but I think I love a code review tool.
Why? What does do that makes me love it?
- It links annotations directly to the code via line numbers.
- Because of that linkage, you can open the code directly from the code comments.
- It allows several levels of severity and categories of comments.
- It allows for teams to collaborate on code reviews.
- It saves notes in an easily parsed XML file for external reporting.
Dave and I are experimenting with it. It looks like it will make all of the code reviews we have to do a little easier.
I have to thank Kola Oyedeji who made some observations about a previous post of mine regarding code reviews.

Hey Glad you’re liking Jupiter – it has been a while since I played with it and by the sounds of it, it seems like it has come some way – and worth another look.
Yeah, Kola, it’s sped up my code review process (at least the evaluation side of things) immensely.
hi , where can i get the jupiter tool? thank your very much mades
Thanks for the article – great to know it!
I discovered Jupiter a few months ago.. It really is a gem. Used it in the development of a recent big community project and it helped a lot indeed.
So.. kudos to the developers!
