GrammaTech, Inc.'s static analysis tool, CodeSonar, is now integrated with the Eclipse IDE. This integration provides developers with the ability to correct programming defects found by CodeSonar without leaving Eclipse. Developers can use CodeSonar’s Eclipse plug-in to run a CodeSonar analysis from within Eclipse, allowing them to examine their code on the desktop and fix issues before check-in. CodeSonar’s warnings for C/C++ and Java code now viewable within Eclipse. The new capability will be provided at no additional charge.
Results are automatically synchronized with a central server running at the customer site, enabling the development team to manage results in a coordinated way. For example, when a user categorizes a defect warning as a high-priority issue, the categorization is propagated to the rest of the users. Users can also compare the results of different analysis runs, for instance, comparing an analysis performed locally to a nightly build analysis, to focus on newly-introduced coding errors.
The CodeSonar Eclipse plug-in is expected to be available late this summer. Customers with a current software maintenance contract will receive it at no additional charge.
