Black Duck Software Announces Availability of Code Search Plug-in for Visual Studio 2010

Freely Downloadable Plug-in Enables Search for Open Source and Enterprise Code

WALTHAM, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/12/10 -- Black Duck Software, a leading global provider of products and services for accelerating software development through the managed use of open source software, today announced the availability of a freely downloadable Code Search Plug-in for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010. By making source code assets easily accessible to developers from within Visual Studio, code search simplifies and enables increased re-use of both internal code and publicly available open source software. Code search improves developer productivity, raises software quality, supports component standardization, and enhances code compliance.

The Black Duck Code Search Plug-in for Visual Studio 2010:

  • Allows developers to search code from numerous repositories in a single place without leaving the Visual Studio 2010 environment.
  • Searches over three billion lines of open source code published on the Black Duck sponsored web site Koders.com.
  • Searches internal code (inside the enterprise firewall) indexed from TFS, SourceSafe and other version control systems (when used with Black Duck Code Sight).
  • Promotes re-use with SmartSearch™, a background agent that proactively identifies opportunities for re-use, within the IDE, by presenting search results that are relevant to the code the developer is creating.

"We are pleased to make code search available to Windows and Microsoft .NET Framework developers, who are looking for ways to speed software development," said Phil Odence, Vice President, Black Duck Software. "The Black Duck Code Search Plug-in for Visual Studio 2010 enables IDE access to billions of lines of open source and proprietary code assets, speeding application development cycles, promoting code re-use and improving business agility."

"Microsoft is pleased that Black Duck Software, a Visual Studio Industry Partner, has invested early in supporting Visual Studio 2010 and our next-generation application development platform, and is today simultaneously shipping Code Search Plug-in for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010," said Matt Nunn, group product manager of Visual Studio at Microsoft Corp. "Products like the Black Duck Code Search Plug-in for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 help customers simplify their development process from design to deployment when using Microsoft products like Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4."
