GrepCode Beta Launches

The GrepCode team is proud to announce the general availability of the Java source code search engine at

Compared to existing alternatives, GrepCode takes code search to a whole new level, increasing Java programmers’ productivity many-fold. In addition to syntax highlighting and Javadoc rendering, GrepCode provides access to the outline view and type hierarchy of Java types. Users can very quickly find dependent and depending projects for a particular project version. GrepCode also allows users to navigate to function bodies from the caller functions. If you have ever wished to check that line of source code in an external jar that was responsible for an exception, and hesitated downloading and installing the project source in your IDE, GrepCode is for you. No downloads. No installs.

We index around 2 million Java source files from over 32,000 releases of open source Java projects.
