"Code reviews have many benefits, most importantly to find bugs early in the development phase and to enforce coding standards or guidelines.

The Mylyn Reviews project is a sub-project of Mylyn and currently in the incubation phase. Our goal is to enable developers to conduct code reviews as their daily work in Eclipse.

Mylyn Reviews provides a framework for code review provider well as an default implementation. Our review implementation integrates with Mylyn and provides the task-based reviews - either the changesets or patches of a task can be reviewed. Due the contribution of R4E(Review 4 Ericcson), formal software reviews (IEEE Std 1028-1997) can also be conducted.

In this talk we will give an overview of Mylyn Reviews as well as an outlook on upcoming features."

Context sensitive review is one of the most efficient ways to improve software quality. This type of review is done without leaving the IDE where the artifact (e.g. source code, model) was created, it allow developers to use all the IDE features to understand what they are reviewing e.g. finding where a method is being called. Our goal is to make Eclipse developers more productive by finding bugs, design rule violation etc. early in the development phase, to allow asynchronous pair programming and to even conduct formal reviews according to the IEEE standard 1028-1997. This type of review is being implemented in Mylyn Reviews which is a sub-project of the Mylyn project. Mylyn Reviews provides a framework for code review provider and a default implementation. Our review implementation integrates with Mylyn and provides the task-based reviews - either the change sets or patches of a task can be reviewed. In this talk we will give an overview of Mylyn Reviews as well as an outlook on upcoming features.
