Patent
Full-text available
The facilitated computation of an available symbol set at code locations in a dynamic language program, in which the program is executed up to a particular halt point for which an available symbol set is to be generated. At the halt point, a type of a value of a particular variable may be used in order to generate the available symbol set. However,...

A method to measure the performance of an Application Programming Interface (API) includes selecting a target API and tracking memory allocation for the functional calls of the selected API to generate a list of functions called by the API. The individual functions are then called within the API in isolation and timing and memory allocation data fo...
Patent
Embodiments provided a formalized set of intermediate analysis contexts that are relevant for analysis checks of target code. Such intermediate analysis context may include, but are not limited to, the development phase of targeted code, the type or state of the targeted code, a source manipulating the targeted code, a purpose for the targeted code...
Patent
Full-text available
Concepts and technologies are described herein for extending the behavior of a software development tool. An extension can be accessed and consumed by a software development tool to configure the software development tool to perform an operation in an extended mode. In one example, an extension can extend a compiler based on the input source code....
Patent
Full-text available
A script engine for a dynamic language can collect memory allocation information for dynamic objects created by the scripting engine and for dynamic objects created by the script engine host. A native interface can be exposed to a client comprising a software development tool. The software development tool can be a third-party tool. In response to...
Patent
Aspects of the subject matter described herein relate to assisting development tools. In aspects, statements that influence runtime behavior may be inserted into code of a program. For example, a statement inserted into a function may set a property of a runtime object to indicate that a debugger is to be notified for exceptions that are encountere...
Patent
Full-text available
A language service provider framework that generates an application context of a dynamic language program being authored. The application context includes a description of the dynamic language application being authored, one or more specific locations within the program, and runtime environment information. A language service provider port componen...
Patent
Full-text available
Creating metadata for dynamic code in a descriptive metadata language. The method includes obtaining one or more first data structures defining constructs in a body of dynamic language source code. From the one or more first data structures, identifier information is extracted for one or more of the defined constructs. Knowledge about the construct...
Patent
Full-text available
Transforming dynamic code. The method includes obtaining one or more first data structures defining constructs in a body of dynamic language source code. From the one or more first data structures, identifier information is extracted for one or more of the defined constructs. Knowledge about the constructs is augmented. Using the identifier informa...
Patent
Full-text available
Various technologies and techniques are disclosed for providing a code analysis debugger. A code analysis process is performed to identify possible program defects that are present in particular source code. The results of the code analysis are stored in a results file in a structured format. The structured format contains sections that describe de...
Patent
Full-text available
Performing tracing functionality. A method includes collecting runtime information that describes the execution of code. The collected runtime information is correlated to specific lines of code and one or more paths taken to get to specific lines of code. User input is received defining a view preference. A code visualization is provided based on...
Patent
Full-text available
An exemplary method includes receiving source code having a plurality of code segments, providing a desired level of quality for the source code, analyzing the source code to assign a complexity measure to each of the plurality of code segments and assigning a level of code coverage to each of the plurality of code segments based at least in part o...
Patent
Full-text available
Analyzing dynamic source code. A method includes accessing a specific metadata format data structure. The data structure was created by obtaining one or more first data structures defining constructs in a body of dynamic language source code. From the one or more first data structures, identifier information is extracted for one or more of the defi...
Patent
Full-text available
Techniques are described herein that are capable of dynamically injecting code into a running process. For instance, the techniques are capable of causing arbitrary code to be activated in the process while the process is running in response to receipt of a request for dynamic execution of the arbitrary code from outside the process while the proce...
Patent
Full-text available
An assembly aggregate comprising a virtual, logical view of an arbitrarily defined collection of intermediate code and metadata can be authored, factored, accessed, modified, and distributed. Multiple physical containers of assembly information can be aggregated to create a single logical assembly called an assembly aggregate. An assembly can thus...
