VS Law Workstation is a coding standards enforcement add-in for Microsoft Visual Basic .NET source code. Integrating tightly with the Microsoft Visual Studio .NET IDE (2002/2003), it allows easy detection and correction of coding standards violations. It comes supplied with more than 150 professional rules that can be easily customised with VS Law Administrator. This ability to customise rules means that automated code reviews can extend well beyond basic coding standards compliance checking to include detection of known issues (that lead to subtle bugs), detection of sub-optimal code likely to impact performance and detection of dead (unused) code. VS Law Workstation also reports statistics such as violation counts, line counts (split by type) and code complexity measurements in the form of McCabe Cyclomatic complexity values all of which can assist in measuring and monitoring the progress of software developments.
