DMS Decision Management Systems GmbH is pleased to announce release 1.4
of the KOPI Suite (

This release enhances KJC, our Java compiler, with an outstanding new
feature: a comprehensive set of diagnostic messages aimed at helping
developers keep their code at a high level of legibility and
maintainability. There are three types of warnings which act on:
- dangerous, or redundant code;
- dirty, old, or unreadable syntax;
- optimizable code.
All these warnings are customizable by the user and designed to improve
the code quality. The rules come from the JLS, Sun's "Java Coding
Convention", and several other sources and are based on our experience.
This new version also fixes several bugs and adds new command-line

We strongly encourage you to send us feedback on this new feature. Next
month we will focus our work on improving these diagnostic messages and
we will rewrite the code generation back-end to support state-of-the art
