Subject RE: generate unused function report
Date Thu, 13 Sep 2001 15:10:27 GMT
take a look at, they produce a coverage tool (JProbe or 
JCoverage) which can show what of your code never gets executed, 
although you would need to do a pretty thorough test before removing 
chunks. Removing unreferenced classes is fairly easy, but functions is 
a bit harder. Also you would need to check that no methods are invoked 
using reflection ...

cheers, jamie
