Inspecting the integrity of your source code.

February 26th, 2009 • Comments Off on Inspecting the integrity of your source code.

Software projects grow over time. They get bigger, more stuff is added, patches added and bugs fixed. New features added, and removed and code removed. But who keeps track of the changes and ensures that your source code repository stays clean? That they are no old undeleted files, no missing unittest, that all dependecies are correct? In short: that they are no broken windows (link) and a nice clean environment a engineer can checkout, compile and run within minutes? 

I’m using the ReInCheck tool for that. Currently it is customized to support a multi module maven project which consists of OSGi bundles. But it should be easy to adopt it to your needs.

I will give presentations, chair groups and on top of that be very happen when I could meet you at OGF 25 🙂
