How does it work?

  1. Code Parsers analyze your code, and store the Analysis in a Repository.
  2. You can then query this repository to learn more about your code
  3. Standalone configurations (Professional Edition) run all components on a single PC.
    Recommended for small/medium volumes of code.
  4. In Client/Server configurations (Team System), Code Analyzers and Repository reside on a server. Developers run a VE client on their PC and access the shared Repository.
  5. Code Analysis and Documentation are automatically generated with Scheduled Jobs.
