X-Ray - software visualization

Details Group Tabs


X-Ray is a free open-source software visualization plug-in for the Eclipse framework,
it provides System Complexity View, Class and Package Dependency View for a given Java project.

The plug-in che be downloaded HERE

The model is now accessible to any other plug-in (yes, you can use my model for your own contributions!).

System Complexity View:

Nodes are rectangles that model classes of the underlying system (the width of a rectangle represents the number of methods implemented in that class, while the height of the rectangle represents the number of lines of code of the whole class). Edges represent inheritance between classes. Nodes are arranged in vertical (top-down) trees that highlight inheritance hierarchy.

Class Dependency View and Package Dependency View:

Arranged in a bi-dimensional circle, classes and packages are linked together by dependency links (so far just method calls), each of them with a certain weight, highlighting how strength is the dependency between entities. We say that a class has a dependency when the class uses some code implemented by another class. The darker and larger is the arrow between two nodes, the stronger is the

Version provides:
* External interfaces are now modeled
* A bug in the creation of the model has been fixed
* Faster model
* Less memory footprint
* Model accessible from other plug-ins
* Progress bar giving information about the model construction

The plug-in is still a beta, and it also has limited functionalities. Feel free to
contact me for any reason (information, bugs, requests, ..)

Hello. I am the oroginal developer of X-Ray. Please note that this plug-in does not work with the current versions of Eclipse. To make it run and use it, you need to download an older version of Eclipse and use that. You can try it on Ganymede: https://wiki.eclipse.org/Older_Versions_Of_Eclipse
