Coverity has released version 7 of its testing platform with improved C#, Java, C, C++ algorithms in addition to support for SonarQube, Eclipse and Visual Studio 2013. The release also includes support for clang compiler used in the development of Objective-C and C/C++.
This article contains the testimonies of several project leaders detailing the process used to achieve a low Coverity Scan defect density.
Coverity recently released Readiness Manager for Java providing a dashboard and analysis for code complexity, violation of best practices, architectural integrity, interdependencies, and test coverage.
The Java static-analysis defect detection space got a new entrant this week with Coverity's release of Prevent SQS, a code analysis tool that analyzes byte code, and builds an interal map of all possible execution paths upon which interprocedural defect analysis is done to find problems that lead to runtime exceptions, security vulnerabilities, unpredictable behavior, and performance degradation.
