Share the article!


A recent project was created in sourceforge, the authors are non other than Kent Beck of Extreme Programming fame and Erich Gamma of Design Patterns fame.  Beck and Gamma had previously collaborated in the JUnit project. Martin Fowler said “Never in the field of software development was so much owed by so many to so few lines of code” in reference to the JUnit project.

The duo has checked in the javaspider project 10 days ago.  Here’s what its about “Java Spider helps you understand complicated Java programs by helping you draw a graph of objects and their relationships.”.  There are no releases yet, however the code is available in CVS.  I’m in the process of trying to figure out what its all about, stay tuned!
