Duplicated code detection tool (SDD)

Project Lead: Iryoung Jeong

Mentor: Pascal Rapicault

Implementing SDD for eclipse environment. SDD is an algorithm for detecting duplicated parts which are not just identical, but also similar ones in a large amount of source code in a reasonable time.

Motivation

When one is not really paying attention when reviewing other people's code, duplications can happen easily, especially when there are many developers working on the same code base, such as in open source projects. But detecting duplications by people is very ineffective and previous algorithms to detect automatically are too slow for practical purposes or limited in its features. So implementing SDD can be a solution for the problem because SDD can find almost-duplicated (not exactly same) parts practically and Eclipse has a very good infrastructure for SDD UI.

SDD

  • The algorithm for detecting similar parts in large source.
  • No dependency on specific languages, Not exact parts, Fast

How it works

  • coming soon..;)
  • Using an Index, Inverted Index
