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.

Visual Expert Standalone

When analyzing small volumes of code ortrying Visual Expert, you can run it locally on a developer PC.

Visual Expert Standalone License

Standalone Configuration
The Developer run all Visual Expert components on his PC.

Visual Expert Server

For large volumes of code, and for sharing analyses between team members, Visual Expert will run on a server.

Visual Expert Team System

Client/Server Configuration
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.
