Code Spotter vs Sourcetrail: What are the differences?

Developers describe Code Spotter as "Cloud-based Static Code Analysis for Java". Boolean satisfiability. Interprocedural data flow. Statistical analysis. We’ve got them all. Plus false path pruning, which understands the data dependencies in your code and eliminates infeasible paths from the analysis so you don’t waste time triaging non issues. On the other hand, Sourcetrail is detailed as "Get productive on unfamiliar source code". Sourcetrail is a cross-platform source explorer for C/C++ and Java. It helps software engineers explore and navigate unknown source code quickly and thoroughly by combining an interactive graph visualization, a concise code view and a powerful search algorithm, all built into an easy-to-use cross-platform developer tool.

Code Spotter and Sourcetrail can be primarily classified as "Code Review" tools.

Some of the features offered by Code Spotter are:

  • Accurate Java source code analysis
  • Easy to understand results
  • Uncover issues faster with deep source code analysis – find that needle in the haystack.

On the other hand, Sourcetrail provides the following key features:

  • Index your Source Code - Sourcetrail's in-depth static analysis finds all definitions and references within your source files. You can choose from several methods for project setup.
  • Find any Symbol - Use Sourcetrail's search field to quickly find any symbol within the whole codebase. The fuzzy keyword matching gives you the best matches with just a few keystrokes
  • Navigate Visually - The graph visualization provides a quick overview of any class, method, field, etc., and all its relations. The graph is fully interactive. Use it to move through the codebase by focusing on other nodes and edges.
