CodeLogic IntelliJ IDEA Plugin

CodeLogic identifies and records dependencies within and across your applications. The CodeLogic plugins and extensions display this dependency information within supported IDE's. With this additional dependency information, developers can make a more informed decision about code changes.

The CodeLogic Plugin is compatible with IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate and Community Edition 2020.3+ and 2021.2+ for Java.
