Lines of Code

Avatar

First off, let me state for the record, "We understand fully that lines of code is not a great metric."  Sometimes more lines of code makes for clearer code; sometimes it's just inefficient.  Sometimes fewer lines of code are clearer; sometimes they're completely unreadable.  We get that.

On occasion, though, our clients and prospective clients ask us how many lines of code there are in the SCORM Engine.  And, I'm going to share with you a report for both the .NET and Java versions of the Engine.  We've spent years building the two source code versions to be tightly tied.  The source code that is shared between them is substantial, and the majority that isn't shared is automatically translated by a project we created called cs2j.  

So, for a representative count for a single source language, look at the .NET counts.  (If taken independently, the Java count is within 5% of the .NET count.)  (To be clear, the javascript from the .net source is delivered with the Java source version, as is the SQL, and the XML, etc.)

 (To be clear, this was calculated using the open source project found here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/cloc/
