VS Law Workstation is a powerful coding standards enforcement add-in for Microsoft Visual Basic .NET source code. Integrating tightly with the Microsoft Visual Studio .NET IDE (2002/2003), it allows the detection and correction of coding standards and other rule violations. It comes supplied with more than 150 professional quality rules that can be easily customised using the separate flexible rule editor VS Law Administrator. This ability to customise rules means that automated code reviews can extend well beyond basic coding standards compliance checking to include detection of known issues (that lead to subtle bugs), detection of sub-optimal code likely to impact performance and detection of dead (unused) code. VS Law Workstation also reports statistics such as violation counts, line counts (split by type) and code complexity measurements in the form of McCabe Cyclomatic complexity values all of which can assist team leaders and project managers in measuring and monitoring the progress of software developments. Review results are presented directly to the developer within the IDE and can be sorted and grouped as appropriate to focus on issues of concern. Double-clicking any violation selects the offending line of code enabling issues to be quickly located and fixed. VS Law Workstation can identify and report on issues in the following general categories: Arguments, Assembly Information, Attributes, Build Configurations, Class Declarations, Code Complexity, Code Layout, Comments, Constant Declarations, Dead Code, Enum Declarations, Events and Delegates, Exception Handling, Interfaces, Logic Errors, Method Declarations, Namespace Declarations, Project Settings, Property Declarations, Source Files, Structure Declarations, Type Declarations, Unauthorised Keywords, Variable Declarations and Windows Forms Design.
