QuickRev is a code review tool which supports formal code review processes for Subversion, GIT and ClearCase controlled files. It implements a Complete Review Cycle, allows reviews between different versions and shows the differences between the files. It can be configured easily to be adapted to the established review process. Produces readable xml-output to be archived for later inspection respectively verification and to be formatted via stylesheets or parsed for further evaluation in any intended way.

  • Metrics
    • Metrics like number of review files, lines of code, review effort, etc. will be written to the project files automatically.
  • QuickRevBoard
    • A task list with all reviews in progress and the review history of all files can be generated via the integrated QuickRevBoard. ( QuickRevBoard)
  • Review History and Task Lists
    • The history of all review files can be stored in a database, so QuickRev can select automatically the last reviewed version of a file as new base version of a review to perform reviews without gaps in between.
