<div id="introText">
R4E is a tool, fully integrated within Eclipse, which is used to perform context-sensitive reviews. It is optimized to work on Java (JDT) and
C/C++ (CDT) code, but can also be used on pure textual input.
<li><b>Efficient peer reviews of source code</b>: R4E provides advanced functionality to support your organization with Java, C /C++ and Text peer reviews.</li>
<li><b>Automatic generation of review items</b>: Wizard helps users find review items (e.g. finds lines of code that were changed or that are part of Version Control System Change Sets).</li>
<li><b>Faster understanding of the artifact</b>: Reviewers have access to creation context features (e.g. all powerful Eclipse IDE code navigation/search features).</li>
<li><b>Nothing to print</b>: Reviews are performed using the electronic version of the artifact.</li>
<li><b>Always review the right things</b>: R4E supports Git Version Control System and keeps track of file versions associated to review items and anomalies.</li>
<li><b>Scheduling review based on resource availability</b>: Automated meeting request creation and email notifications, access to LDAP databases for users.</li>
<li>Supports Git Version Control System and SVN (via Mylyn Versions and Subclipse).</li>
<li>Support for simultaneous reviews by multiple users.</li>
<li>Use of current user perspective with extra R4E views.</li>
<li>Review Items browsing using Eclipse compare viewers.</li>
<li>Support multiple review types: Basic, Informal (Agile), Formal (IEEE std. 1028), to better suit the work flow in your team</li>
<li>Review items specify portions of code that need to be reviewed. They could be generated manually or automatically as Git change sets.</li>
<li>Integration with LDAP databases (e.g. employee database).</li>
<li>Integration of utilities to keep track of reviewed items and time spent in reviews.</li>
<li>Integration with SMTP and VCalendar for email notification and communication between users.</li>
<li>Anomalies specify portions of code that are incorrect or need to be improved/removed.
<li>Support for custom design rules enabling automatic entry of anomaly attributes.</li>
R4E is currently in incubation. It can be installed from the <a href=""
target="_self">R4E Stable build</a> update site <br>or bleeding edge builds at <a href="" target="_self">R4E Nightly</a> update site</p>
R4E uses Mylyn Versions connectors to integrate with version control system clients e.g. EGit, Svn (via subclipse).
The latest Mylyn versions build can be downloaded from update site
