A next-generation software visualization system that scales to millions of lines of code.
View our demo for a quick look at our award-winning software visualization system.
The growing complexity of large software systems makes it more difficult for developers to test and analyze the interrelationships between elements of source code. CodeSonar's visualization features are designed to optimize visual inspection and analysis of software, offering real-time, fluid transitions between views at different levels of abstraction.
High Performance and Scalability
A key element of the visualization tool is its ability to handle large code bases (over 10 million lines of code). Data sets of this size present both technical and cognitive challenges, which have been addressed from the ground up.
- Smooth, real-time navigation:
Zoom, pan, expand, collapse, and more, even as program sizes grow into the millions of lines of code.
- Layered data presentation:
Detail is progressively revealed as you zoom in, and abstracted as you zoom out. A 'link bundling' option effectively eliminates the visual clutter of individual links in high-level views while preserving connectivity information.
- Display only the elements you are interested in:
Choose arbitrary portions of the program to examine in dedicated Focus areas; hide links and nodes that are not currently relevant.
CodeSonar® lets you visualize the data you want to see in the layout you want to see it in.
- Multiple layout options:
Choose from a cluster, radio, flow, and others.
- Explore the way you want:
Top-down, bottom-up, outward from a specific point, or anything in between.
- Visualize custom data:
Users can readily apply the visualization infrastructure to other kinds of data.
The displayed source listing and summary information automatically update to match selections in the visualization panel.
- Search capabilities:
Find program components by name, add selected search results to the current view, and zoom in on individual results.
Annotate any node in the visualization, and share annotations with other users.
CodeSonar's hub-based architecture seamlessly supports multiple visualization users.
