  • JDiff is a javadoc plugin that reports api contract changes, based on the Javadoc of the code. This approach is complementary to that of Clirr - JDiff seems to be a great tool for manual inspection during release preparation, while Clirr is well suited to detect one class of compatibility problems automatically during the nightly build.
  • The APIComparatorPlugin for the IntelliJ IDEA IDE is an interactive tool that presents binary api diffs visually.
  • If you like Clirr because you want to deliver quality work to your users, you might want to have a look at Checkstyle, a tool for automatic code inspection. The development teams of Clirr and Checkstyle overlap, so if you like Clirr, you will probably love Checkstyle.
