Highly Responsive Code Completion
ANTLRWorks 2 is the first development enviroment to incorporate Tunnel Vision Labs' recent advances in highly responsive code completion -- code completion features respond instantly as you type in a grammar. In the past, languages with dynamic typing and/or type inference posed significant limitations on IDEs to produce usable code completion behavior. ANTLRWorks 2 highlights the ability of our algorithms to overcome these limitations.
ANTLRWorks 2 provides several standard navigation features in NetBeans. In addition to the Navigator window, ANTLRWorks 2 highlights references to the element under the caret (the "Mark Occurrences" feature) and allows the user to Ctrl+Click elements to jump to a declaration.
The performance and consistency of Tunnel Vision Labs' source analysis algorithms allows us to provide several additional features to help users understand large amounts of code with less effort. ANTLRWorks 2 allows users to hover over an element in a grammar to see a tooltip with information about the referenced rule.
