    Improving Code Quality - Scheduling Technical Debt and the Bucket Parable
    By Mike Van, 13 August 2012

    Please read the previous post on improving code-quality using LCOM4 and Cyclomatic Complexity before reading this entry. Below I present two ways of thinking about technical debt in your organizations. The first is the old-school approach, and the second is the approach preferred once the vast amount of cyber-fraud was detected.

    Separating Integration and Unit Tests with Maven, Sonar, Failsafe, and JaCoCo
    By Jakub Holy, 2 August 2012

    Goal: Execute the slow integration tests separately from unit tests and show as much information about them as possible in Sonar.

    Sonar’s Quality Alphabet

    Sonar (by is getting more and more popular among developer teams. It’s an open source platform measuring software quality in the following 7 axes: Architecture and Design, Comments, Coding Rules, Complexity, Code Duplication, Potential Bugs, Unit Tests.

    Improving Code Quality - LCOM4 and Cyclomatic Complexity
    By Mike Van, 13 August 2012

    One of the reasons that open-source software is so solid is that we use some of the most cutting-edge open-source code analytic-tools available to ensure our software does what we intend in a bug-free manner. In this post, I will talk about one tool we use, Sonar, and two specific metrics I've found useful in focusing the resolution of our technical debt.

    Visualize JavaScript code quality and code coverage with Sonar
    By Benjamin Seber, 8 August 2012

    It is hard to imagine a web project without JavaScript code today. JavaScript is an easy to learn and very performant script language. In the past we have used JavaScript mostly for eye-candy and form validation. Recently we have been asked more often to implement complex user interfaces with trees, sortable tables and things like that. So we decided to rely more on JavaScript to improve the feedback of the website to user actions.

    Sonar voor de architect (Dutch)
    By Mylene Reiners, 23 August 2012

    Ik hoop dat iedereen Sonar kent, een (voor mij) onmisbaar tool om de code kwaliteit van een project te meten. Echter: meten is leuk, maar wat moet je vervolgens met die waarden?
    In deze post een eerste aanzet: de "package tangle index" en de "dependencies to cut". Eigenlijk de twee belangrijkste metrics waar ik - als architect - me verantwoordelijk voor voel.
