Can I use Globalyzer Lite with my standard IDE?

The Globalyzer Lite client can be used with Eclipse, Visual Studio and IntelliJ IDEs.

Using Globalyzer Lite from an Integrated Development Environment

Globalyzer Lite may be used within many IDEs that support external tools, including Visual Studio, IntelliJ IDEA, and Eclipse. Configuring Lite as an external tool takes some initial setup, but is relatively easy to accomplish. Once configured, Lite may be used through the IDE's external tool menu with the click of a button. The recommended, documented tools:

  1. Scan the currently selected file/directory.
  2. Scan everything within the parent directory of the currently selected file/directory.
  3. Scan the entire project.

Demonstration videos are available for:

To configure Lite in the IDE, please see this page: Lite IDE Usage.

The developer can then use the power of the IDE to refactor the relevant issues or to mark false positives in the code using Globalyzer ignore comments, such as $NON-NLS-L$. For more information, see the Globalyzer Comment Tags in False Positives .

How do I install Globalyzer Lite?

To install the Globalyzer Lite, you first need a Globalyzer account (see this FAQ). Once you have an account, you log into the Globalyzer Server and at the bottom of your home page there is a link to download Globalyzer Lite.

The Globalyzer Lite is a standalone Java application. It uses Rule Sets to scan code at the command line. It is used in Jenkins configured for the Continuous G11n System and can be integrated as an external tool in an IDE.

Please see installation for complete Globalyzer Lite download/installation instructions.

Those refactoring and the comment tags are now part of the code: The Continuous Globalization System using the same Lite project definition file will show the same results in the Dashboard.
