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 designed for individual and freelance developers with small codebases. In addition to the manual analysis offered by conventional code analysis tool integration solutions, Visual Lint Standard Edition offers the capability for automated background analysis of entire solutions and workspaces.
  • Visual Lint Professional Edition is recommended for development teams with medium sized codebases. It includes all 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 large codebases and/or detailed analysis configuration and reporting requirements. In addition to all of the capabilities of the Visual Lint 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 designed for use in build server or non-interactive (i.e. service) environments and offers incremental, parallelised code analysis of large codebases with all of the flexibility of Visual Lint Enterprise Edition. 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:
