This paper describes the code tagging plug-in coTag, which allows annotating code snippets in the integrated development environment eclipse. coTag offers an easy-to-use interface for tagging and searching. Using the similarity-based search engine of the open-source tool myCBR, the user can search not only for exactly the same tags as offered by other code tagging extensions, but also for similar tags and, thus, for similar code snippets. coTag provides means for context-based adding of new as well as changing of existing similarity links between tags, supported by myCBRs explanation component.
