What is it?
Slizaa is a free and open source workbench for software dependency analysis. Slizaa provides a set of sophisticated tools (e.g., a dependency structure matrix, a graph view or a powerful cross referencer) to interactively explore and visualize the dependencies and the structure of your application.
On top of that, Slizaa allows you to search for arbitrary patterns in your code base using the simple but powerful Cypher query language directly from within the workbench.
Maintainability of software is inversely proportional to the number of dependencies. Without continuous surveillance applications sooner or later become hard to maintain due to unwanted 'accidental' dependencies.
For a continuous and efficient monitoring of your applications dependency structure, tool support is crucial. Slizaa provides an easy to use solution for dependency analysis and visualization.
Slizaa allows you to scan arbitrary (Java-based) applications and store their structural information in a graph database backend. All these structural information is accessible directly from within Slizaa using the integrated Cypher query console.
As searching for patterns in a flat graph can be a confusing and cluttering task, Slizaa provides customizable mappings to create hierarchical views of the stored software structure graph. Using hierarchical views makes exploring your application's architecture as easy as browsing code in your favorite IDE.
