Riverblade - Visual Lint Product Editions

Visual Lint Product Editions

Visual Lint is available in Standard, Professional, Enterprise and Build Server editions:

  • Visual Lint Standard Edition is recommended for small teams and individual developers with relatively small codebases. In addition to the manual analysis offered by conventional code analysis tool integration solutions, Visual Lint Standard Edition also offers the capability for automated background analysis of entire solutions and workspaces.
  • Visual Lint Professional Edition is recommended for development teams who deal with large codebases or who require customised analysis configurations. It includes alll of the capabilities of Visual Lint Standard Edition, plus the ability to selectively include or exclude specific files or projects, define custom analysis configurations and much more.
  • Visual Lint Enterprise Edition is recommended for large development teams with detailed analysis configuration and reporting requirements. In addition to automated background analysis of entire solutions and workspaces and the other capabilities of the Professional Edition, Visual Lint Enterprise Edition offers accelerated grid analysis, detailed HTML reporting, viewing of analysis history and the most customisable analysis configuration of any of the interactive Visual Lint editions.
  • Visual Lint Build Server Edition is required to use the Visual Lint command line application (VisualLintConsole) in a build server or non-interactive (i.e. service) environment. In an interactive session (i.e. one with a logged on user), it functions identically to Visual Lint Enterprise Edition.

The capabilities of each interactive Visual Lint edition are summarised in the table below:
