Well dont know what it means in ERP terms but normally it is to check the quality and efficiency of the code written.

Welcome to JavaRanch!

We're pleased to have you here with us in the Servlets forum, but there are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

You can change it here

Also, since this is a general question about software development (has nothing to do with servlets in particular) I'm moving this to the General Computing forum.

There are several possible goals for code reviews. All of them involve a bunch of people reading or gathering to discuss some code, but mixing them can be disasterous. Focus on one at a time:

Find defects - Look for errors, maybe suggest corrections

Standards compliance - Check method names, code style, exception handling, library usage, etc.

Knowledge transfer - The author explains what he did and why.

Quality assessment - High level evaluation, perhaps comparing vendors or open source options.

I'm sure there are more. I think the book "Code Complete" had a good discussion of all this.

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
I agree. Here's the link:
