The structure101 plug-in for IntelliJIDEA v7 (#6813-onwards) is a free companion
to the structure101 client product. The plug-in lets you influence your software
architecture as it happens – when the code is edited in the IDE. Structure101
architecture diagrams specify layering and composition in a concise format. The
plug-in displays the diagrams within the IDE, any violations to the target
architecture are shown on the diagrams, and the plug-in lets you navigate to the
relevant code. A key feature is that the plug-in can be set to warn only on new
code changes that are inconsistent with the architecture. This way developers
can grow the code-base towards the target architecture without being constantly
swamped with pre-existing violations.
