Context of problematic understatding

Find code components and tools for <task1>, <task2>...

All tasks and targets are IT-related, not coding (where "code components" are usable and understandable term) per se.

For me "code components" != "key components" (and I know|understand the latter form)

Extended context

... services easily integrate with 3-rd party tools for:

  • deploy apps
  • Find code components and tools for /different development-related activities here/
  • /another advantages/
  • No idea. This isn't a question of English, but either IT jargon or a misuse of it. Can you give us more context? What text appeared around this sentence? Where did you find it?

  • @DanBron - IT-company offer solutions for (almost) full ALM ("application lifecycle management"), this is part of possibilities. And for me (not native English-speaking) it's a question of English, while I'm in the same business Mar 22, 2017 at 13:11

    If, as you claim, it's not related to coding, you're probably better off asking the author. There are a couple of non-standard terms in the extended context: "3-rd" and "agvantages". They might be using code components in a non-standard way as well.

Code components are libraries. Users can extend the class of the code component or implement it to use the methods in the code component

  • But OP said this is not related to coding.

  • Sure code here is a noun adjunct, i.e. a noun acting like an adjective, aka a classifying property. By the OP's specific question is: what does it mean? What specific properties is is classifying?

  • Yes, that's why I asked for those things in a comment under his question rather than answering ;) . It's not really helpful to answer unclear questions.
