JNinka Scanner

What is JNinka Scanner?

JNinka is a free source code scanner for license discovery. JNinka is released as a fully open source code, under the AGPL license. The software is based on the Ninka algorithm. It works by scanning the code for common license, copyright, and other notes.

  

How does it work?

The new free open source scanner identifies open source code hidden within your own proprietary code. The scan runs locally, keeping the scanned code fully secure. The results of the scan may also be imported into White Source Software cloud-based Open Source Lifecycle Management service, to be managed alongside other open source components.

Why should I use it?

The JNinka scanner is ideal for searching for open source code components that were cut and pasted into proprietary code, and were inadvertently not reported. Since it is based on common texts, the scanner does not require access to a huge and up to date database, and hence can be run off line, very quickly, and in private. The scanner produces an XML that can optionally be consumed by White Source's open source lifecycle management service.
