Analysis of POCO Source Code

Filed under: Uncategorized by guenter at 20:38

Issam Lahlali, lead developer of the CppDepend static analyzer, was nice enough to tell me about a source code analysis of POCO, done with CppDepend. You can find the detailed analysis in his blog. In summary, POCO is well designed and implemented, according to his analysis. Not that I would have expected anything else ;-), but nevertheless it feels good to get an independent opinion.

  1. On the large, everything is peaches with the design. I love it and prefer PoCo (greatly) over anything boost-y or ACE-y. It is just so much simpler to use.

    On the detail level there are the usual annoyances.

    I will post my critical notes at the original report because it seemed to be about the report than my satisfaction with Poco. So head over to read it if you wish:
