Code review

Hi,
In my organization we would like to activate a code review system, in
wich a developer have to pass a review from a reviewer before check in
the modified files in source safe. Is there any way or software to
optimizate this task?
We actually use .Net 2003 and source safe 6.0d.

Thanks in advance.

Filippo,

Without sounding like a shill for MS, have you considered moving to
VS.NET 2005 with Team System? It will allow you to have rules set up that
require a review of the code before a file is checked back into the source
tree (or something VERY similar).

Also, I believe the performance of SourceSafe has been improved in this
version as well (my understanding is that it is abysmal).

Hope this helps.

Filippo,
Sounds like you are going to be spending a lot of time waiting to check in
your work with such an arrangement. The concept of code review is not a bad
one, but it is also very easy to abuse and make cumbersome. As far as having
a software - driven system for it, I doubt you could implement one just with
VSS.
Team System or third party software may be available to implement such a
scheme.
IMO, code reviews should be done with a view towards being instructive and
educational, and to help enforce good coding practices, not to make you wait
around until you've been told you can "go ahead and check it in".

I need some advice guys.. I am proposing that we get someone to do a complete audit/review of our Java application codebase, about 1000 JSPs/Servlets and 100 EJBs. If I get firms to submit proposals, what should I be asking /looking out for? I realise that running the applications through a migration tool will help but I am looking for a more through analysis of the actual codebase as well as assessment of the architecture Thanks

Hello, I would like to build a website using ASP.NET. I would like website visitors to be able to download code that I would like to make available to them and that would be residing on my personal server.

My question is more generic, but it involves what I consider ANSI standard C and portability.
