Visual Lint Product Editions
Visual Lint is available in Personal, Professional, Enterprise and Build Server editions:
Visual Lint Personal 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 Personal Edition offers the capability for automated background analysis of entire solutions and workspaces.
- Visual Lint Professional Edition is recommended for development teams with small or medium sized codebases. It includes all of the capabilities of Visual Lint Personal 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.
Please note that Visual Lint Personal Edition is licenced for use by individual and freelance developers rather than organisations. If your organisation has more than one member of staff, you must use Visual Lint Professional Edition or above.
The capabilities of each interactive Visual Lint edition are summarised in the table below:
