Progress on the code recommenders project

Eric | March 4, 2011

My colleagues Marcel Bruch and Johannes Lerch have been working heavily on getting ready for the first release of the Eclipse Code Recommenders project. The project uses machine-learning based recommender models to aid programmers in different tasks, including:

  • Code Completion
  • Extended JavaDoc
  • Codesearch
  • Stacktrace-based search
  • Bug detectors

See this website for some exciting first videos. Marcel’s blog always contains the latest information. Also Jaxenter has just published an article in German.

The project’s vision is well described in our paper IDE 2.0: Collective Intelligence in Software Development.
