It will be really great if the Outline classes could be used from a RDp Plugin project or from a custom Java class. This will allow a programmer to parse RPG source code an to obtain related metadata from it.
For example, detect which variables are global and which are local. Determine how many procedures are present in the code and where are invoked...
This kind of information can be used to calculate metrics, refactoring and any other related task.
The outline is already working, just make an usable and extendable interface.
A Java Programmer extends or uses the Outline API clases to create custom tools that help him to manipulate or analize their source code.
