Code reuse and component developed code is an important methodology focussing on saving developers time and writing code in a generic way to suit the purposes of other uses. When code is duplicated this costs the business development time which is replicated, if the user can be fed information on prewritten sources for achieving the same goal - this will save the business money and save the coder time / frustration and increase productivity, maintainability of code and adhering to coding standards. The disclosure discusses the need and implementation details of a tool to aid and promote the reuse of code segments with use of a central repository.
