nWire for Java 1.3 Released: Accelerated Real-time Java Code Analysis

  • submit to reddit

nWire for Java is an Eclipse plugin which accelerates Java development by helping developers navigate through their code and better understand the architecture of their application. nWire was designed for developers who get lost in large and complex applications. It dramatically shortens the time it takes to read and understand the code and reduces the learning curve for new developers (watch a 4 minute demo).

Since its' release, about a year ago, it has become an indispensable tool for many professional Java developers. The new release improves the performance and usability. nWire includes the following unique tools:

  • nWire Visualizer - graphically browse the system elements and visualize the associations between them. Filter the associations to produce different types of graphs. Exported images serve as a time saving enhancement for code reviews and developer documentation.
  • nWire Navigator - a unique tool for browsing any type of association in the application code: type inheritance, file inclusion, method invocation and more. This view can be synchronized with the Java code editor to provide instant context while reading the code.
  • nWire Quick Search - search as you type for any element in the system, including methods and fields. Once a relevant component is found, a single click will reveal all its' associated components.

Important Note: From the beginning of June, the base price for nWire will increase from $59 to $79. Until the end of the May, you can still take advantage of the current price. Visit our download page to start a free, 30 day trial. Even if you tried nWire before, you are invited to try it again.

nWire for Java works with Eclipse 3.4 and 3.5. It is also available for PHP.
