jSparrow is an automated Eclipse PlugIn, which finds and replaces different kinds of threats in Java sources with a rule based approach. It improves your Java code and transforms it to Java 7/8.
jSparrow has a set of 45 rules now, which are grouped into seven categories (see rule matrix in our screenshots):
• String manipulation
• Coding Convention
• Old language constructs
Removal of potential bugs and code smells is one of the main purposes of jSparrow. jSparrow is very efficient in disposing of these threats with its rules. You can group the profiles into individual rule profiles, which also can be exported and imported to share them within your development team.
Being up to date with the latest Java standards is requiring a lot of software maintenance work. jSparrow upgrades old code-artifacts to new state-of-the-art programming practices. The usage of jSparrow´s full version allows you to save a lot of valuable time, while offering the option of automatically upgrading to the latest version of Java within minutes in a safe way.
jSparrow improved his Preview Wizard and the Summary Page. It now estimates the time to fix issues manually. The preview wizard shows the number of issues fixed and estimates your saved time. (see screenshots or our release notes: https://jsparrow.eu/changelog/)
Once you installed jSparrow in your Eclipse – you will SAVE MONEY & TIME in modernizing your Java sources.
