Using Golang and Graphviz to Visualize Complex Grails Applications
03 May 2014 , tagged: Golang, Go, Grails, Graphviz, Visualization, Software Development
At work we are maintaining several large and complex grails applications. In order to improve stability and reliability, we’re trying to increase test coverage. But as with all projects, time and resources are limited. In order to get a better understanding of what parts of the application are more important than others, I decided to use Graphviz to help me get a better overview of our applications. Meet Graphviz I discovered my love for the dot language when I used it years ago to analyze template hierarchies in a proprietary CMS system I worked on.
