The Tool for Code Quality Cultivation
Cultivate is an Eclipse plug-in, which guides you to improve the overall design of your Java projects. Cultivate supports you in writing maintainable, reusable and understandable code. This decreases the overall cost of development and maintenance.
Cultivate evaluates and visualizes bad code smells and software metrics. Results are either shown as a textual representation or via a variety of diagrams, focusing on specific design aspects. Developers using Cultivate can easily define a software architecture. During development, violations imposed by the architecture constraints, are indicated. Cultivate shows and analyses also the underlying software concepts, represented in the identifier names.
