XTRAN in the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC)


As a meta-tool, XTRAN can play a role in automating virtually every phase of the SDLC.  Below are illustrations of those roles, both for general software development and for specific types of activities and projects.




General Software Development

Here is how XTRAN can participate in the normal course of software development:



Monitoring Code Quality

Improving Code Quality

Here is how XTRAN can participate in automated improvement of code quality.  This might be necessary, for instance, after a merger or acquisition has brought code into the enterprise that does not conform to the acquiring enterprise's quality standards and coding conventions.
