As a happy ModelMaker Code Explorer user I’ve never been able to justify the purchase of Castalia due to the overlap between the two products. At this price though I’m definitely going to give this new feature set a try to see if it works for me.

Comment on Random thoughts on refactoring tools by Keith http://www.jacobthurman.com/2011/02/10/random-thoughts-on-refactoring-tools/comment-page-1/#comment-836 Keith Sat, 12 Feb 2011 11:27:53 +0000 http://www.jacobthurman.com/?p=90#comment-836 Resharpers user interface for identifying code smells and recommended refactorings is way easier than the Delphi QA audits to use. I’d buy something like resharper for delphi like a shot if it behaved in the same way.

Also IntelliJ IDEA IDE have mostly the same features for Java:code smells, it suggest to you naming conventions on the fly.”

Delphi QA Audits provide such static analysis.

Comment on Random thoughts on refactoring tools by Ciprian Mustiata http://www.jacobthurman.com/2011/02/10/random-thoughts-on-refactoring-tools/comment-page-1/#comment-827 Ciprian Mustiata Fri, 11 Feb 2011 01:05:43 +0000 http://www.jacobthurman.com/?p=90#comment-827 I’m used with Resharper that do have what you need (is C# and VB only). Also IntelliJ IDEA IDE have mostly the same features for Java: code smells, it suggest to you naming conventions on the fly. I’ve applied initially to around 1000 classes and shows simple yet somewhat easy to fix (it has like 300-400 false positives) around 6000 errors.
In general most of refactors excluding “extract method” that is used as common sense to split your very long logic works very bad without static code analysis, are very hard to make easy. For example: you may need to make some methods static, or an expression will always give false, etc. and to delete specific branch of code.
I do agree fully that in real life a refactor + a code analysis tool is priceless for high quality coding!
