Diver: Dynamic Interactive Views For Reverse Engineering
(This README will be expanded over the next few hours / days.)
Diver is a set of advanced tools for debugging and reverse engineering. If you ever wondered, "What did my program just do?", Diver will help you find the answer. Diver is a set of Eclipse plugins that aid developers in understanding software. It uses dynamic analysis and reverse engineering to offer views and filters that aid comprehension and discovery.
Diver allows you to:
- Easily trace your Java programs
- Visualize your program's runtime functionality
- Filter your IDE based on what occurs at runtime
- See what code ran in your source code editors
- And generally understand your software better
In order to run, Diver needs:
- Windows XP or above, or Linux.
- 32-bit or 64-bit Java for Windows. Only 32-bit Java supported on Linux.
- Eclipse 32-bit or 64-bit for Windows, or Eclipse 32-bit for Linux
Dynamic Interactive Tools for Reverse Engineering (Diver) is a ongoing research project of the Computer Human Interaction & Software Engineering Lab at the The University of Victoria. It was initiated by Del Myers, as partial fulfilment of his M.Sc.
