Source code analysis is a complicated process involving support for different language versions and features.

The process consists of

  • integrating with GitHub, Bitbucket, GitLab and Gerrit (on-prem and cloud APIs) are supported,

  • source code syntax handling,

  • structural analysis,

  • metadata and package file analysis,

  • cross referencing and dependency analysis,

  • Git history analysis,

  • metrics calculation,

  • aggregation,

  • duplicate (alias copy paste) detection,

  • co-change detection,

  • change analysis,

  • model level comparison and

  • reporting.

Certain phases in the process require special language specific tools and plugins. The programming languages do evolve at different speeds. This causes challenges for the language level handlers.

Known issues:

  • Duplicate detection does not support TypeScript language.

  • Repositories with special characters in repository name do cause trouble in certain cases.
