There was another recent HN post that showed an analysis of IntelliJ's architecture using a source code analyzer [1]. Does anyone have more information on these types of tools? There seems to be a genre of tools that are used to inspect the architecture of a program, and I have no idea where to start learning about them.

Thanks for the pointer; didn't know about that plug-in. As a long term Intellij Idea user, implementing this as a plug-in to Intellij is one of the things I would like to do in the short term. Would be really great to make the tool let you know about possible coupling as you work on the project.

Let me know if you can get your hands on a list of related plug-ins, I am really curios to see them in action.
