in our company, a couple of people have brought up the idea
of creating a Java application that maintains and
categorizes pieces of Java (and possibly other) code, so
people doing new development could reuse stuff others have
done before them.
Since this is probably a larger task, buying some commercial
product would definitely be an alternative, so my question
is: Has anybody ever come across an application like this?
Requirements or at least nice-to-haves are full text index and integration into CVS.
Or (if we decide to build a solution on our own): Are there
any web pages out there that deal with this subject and
give some hints about possible strategies, algorithms and
Thanks in advance,
