The first lines of source code were added to JWPL in September, 2010. If this young project has had recent activity, then it likely has passed its critical early start-up period, and has become established. The project still may be rapidly changing, innovative and exciting, and finding its focus.
As this project matures, a longer source control history in conjunction with recent activity might indicate that the project has enough merit to hold contributors interest for a long time. It might indicate a mature and relatively bug-free code base, and can be a sign of an organized, dedicated development team.
Note: The source code for JWPL might actually be older than the source control history can reveal. Many new projects begin by incorporating a large amount of source code from existing, older projects. You might be able to tell whether this is the case by looking for a rapid rise in the amount of code early in the project's history.
JWPL is written mostly in Java.
Across all Java projects on Ohloh, 32% of all source code lines are comments.
This holds true for JWPL as well. It contains the same ratio of comment lines to code lines as the majority of Java projects in Ohloh.
A high number of comments might indicate that the code is well-documented and organized, and could be a sign of a helpful and disciplined development team.
During the past twelve months, this project has had only one active contributor.
Over half of all active projects on Ohloh are solo efforts.
For this measurement, Ohloh considers only recent changes to the code. Over the entire history of the project, 4 developers have contributed.
Over the last twelve months, JWPL has not seen any change in activity. This may be a good sign, and an indication that development is continuing at the same pace and not dropping off.
Ohloh makes this determination by comparing the total number of commits made by all developers during the most recent twelve months with the same figure for the prior twelve months. The number of developers and total lines of code are not considered.
