Title: Program code library selection in an integrated development environment

Abstract: An approach for integrated development environment (IDE)-based program code library selection in a networked computing environment (e.g., a cloud computing environment) is provided. Under this approach, a search results file is received in a library selection IDE from a library searching IDE. It may then be determined whether to perform a micro-benchmarking on the at least one method and the at least one class. Based on the determination, the micro-benchmarking may then be performed on the at least one method and the at least one class. A set of code style similarity scores may then be calculated that indicate a similarity between the at least one method and the at least one class with the methods and classes of a second program code file. An ordered list of the methods and classes of the second program code file may then be provided.
