Visual Expert offers TWO ways to compare your code:
2 analyses of the same code or 2 separate sets of code
Visual Expert combines PowerBuilder and database statistics generated during the execution of your application, with a deep analysis of your code.
Generate Call Graphs, Data Models, Source Code Documentation, etc.
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
