Solution Description

AgileReview provides you with an easy possibility to do code reviews in your favorite IDE. Code reviews are a powerful meaning for quality assurance, but switching between spreadsheets and code is very time consuming. With AgileReview you can comment and discuss code without leaving the IDE and more important: without leaving the code. Features of AgileReview:

  • Refactoring stability (within file): Comments stay at the code snipped which you intended to comment, even if the file is edited
  • Refactoring stability (outside file): Comments stay connected to the right file, even after moving or renaming viathe eclipse refactoring mechanism
  • Fight complexity: Close reviews to hide their comments or simply filter your comments by keywords
  • Generic language support: Built-in support for Java, XML and PHP, but it is easy to define your own language support via the preferences
  • Team support: Share your comments with other developers, using your favorite version management client - quite without conflicts.
  • Export metrics: Export data about your reviews to an Excel template, to do advanced analysis
  • Bug/Feature support: Four motivated developers, always eager to fix the bugs you find or consider your feature requests, see bug/feature tracker

Reviews Add new review

Provides the ability to post review comments in your favorite environment with all the tools available in Eclipse. Beats the online tools by lengths.

Can also be used to annotate the code with comments without poluting the source code.

Alpesh Shah above expressed a very sensible feedback and team failed to recognize it. sad. Guys! your tool is wonderful however, you should never fiddle around with source code, instaed have more info in your review.xml file. something like, file name and line number. Its okay, even things dont match when someone update the source and line numbers change. Perhaps you can offer a configuration setting in which user can choose (i) inline code annotations or (ii) no change in source, all info will be in your xml file with warning message that, it might not sync if someone update the code file and line numbers change.

Looking forward to your comments/reply.

Hi, an opt-out might be a solution for that.

The main focus of that tools was the stability of review comments against refactorings, which could just be assured by adding marks to the code. I really know your fears about letting any tool change your code. Basically, this design decision has been made in the very beginning as of large software projects needs to get refactoring stable code comments.

Anyhow, I will take your feedback into account. Please don't hesitate to add your feature request in the GitHub issue tracker. Thanks.

I found this tool fulfill almost all requirement for code review within eclipse. Only one point I would like to improve is, for every review comment, an inline comment is added in code which need to be committed along with code. This sometimes clutter the code and it also means that you need to checkout & checkin code even when you don't make any changes to code but just invalidate review comment. Instead of inline comment, if there is just marker on left bar (like how eclipse shows problem or sonar shows violations) could be perfect solution.

In reply to by Alpesh Shah

Thanks for your feedback! Linking code and comments, even if the code got refactored, is one of the core features of AgileReview. The easiest way to ensure this is by adding markers in the code. AgileReview was constructed around this principle. Showing markers like problems or sonarlint violations is not working with comments as these markers of other tools result from static code analysis which can be performed on demand. Have you tried tools like Gerrit, which are based on individual commits? Maybe these suit your needs more.

Btw: AgileReview is open source. Feel free to contribute your suggestions as pull requests via GitHub :)
