In mainstream software development there can often be a gap which exists between the stages of performing the architectural design of a software system and implementing the detailed algorithms and processes required in the program code. Code Rocket is a code visualization and documentation system which has been developed to fill this gap. Code Rocket provides automated design and documentation support for software developers during detailed stages of code construction. It integrates seamlessly with existing development tools to provide extensive documentation with little or no effort on behalf of the software engineer. Code and documentation remain fully synchronized even when changes are implemented in the code. This paper describes Code Rocket, the rationale for its development, and the key features and benefits it delivers to different stakeholders on a software project. ©2011 IEEE.
