CodeExplorer 1.3

Mar 18, 2009
CodeExplorer is a free Idea plugin that helps to analyze Java code: find all method call chains to the method, what methods called from the method, and other. Analysis results (methods and calls between them) are shown on a handy diagram in the CodeExplorer tool window.
