Avoid Regressions when evolving your application
Master large and complex applications
Automatically generate a complete documentation of your application
Explore your code in ways you've never done before
Enable team members to collaborate during your projects.
When analyzing small volumes of code or trying Visual Expert, you can run it locally on a developer PC.
For large volumes of code, and for sharing analyses between team members, Visual Expert will run on a server.
The Server automatically analyses the code on a scheduled basis.
Developers run a Visual Expert client, query the Server and leverage up-to-date code analyses.
Visual Expert can analyze several programming languages, either separately (Oracle code only for instance) or altogether
(for example: PowerBuilder Front-end + an Oracle back-end + Front-end / Back-end dependencies).
You can analyse multiple applications at the same time.
For example if you maintain a portfolio and need to explore several applications in parallel.
Team members can collaborate, sharing the same code analysis. For instance, an analyst prepares a change and lists the objects impacted. Teammates leverage this Impact Analysis, to review and change the corresponding objects. More about Visual Expert TEAM SYSTEM
When a new code analysis is done, previous ones remain available. Open previous analyses to browse older versions of your code. Compare two code Analyses to find differences between them.
Using VE's features allows a much quicker turnaround, reduces expenses and frees up resources for more productive work.
(The) More you work with Visual Expert - more you understand how convenient it is. (...) I cannot remember so powerful a tool that allows a user to become familiar with a new application in literally a few hours
