OpenGrok and GlassFish

OpenGrok Logo

OpenGrok is a fast and user-friendly multi-lingual search and cross-reference tool that is used by the OpenSolaris team. OpenGrok first grinds through the sources to create the data repository; the program itself is written in java and uses Exuberant Ctags. The result is then browsed through a Java Web App that runs in a container like GlassFish (or Tomcat), and Shawn reports positively on his Experience using OpenGrok on GlassFish.

I think it would be interesting to try to combine the features of OpenGrok with those of Sorcerer. Since Sorcerer uses the JavaC Tree API, the information is more accurate, but OpenGrok has more features (like full text search) and is multi-lingual.

Also check Kohsuke's v0.5 of the Sorcerer, where he uses JavaScript much more aggressively. - eduard/o
