Vector Software (United States) - With the release of the VectorCAST integration with CodeSonar, software development organizations can quickly and easily analyze and validate source code – identifying serious vulnerabilities or bugs that cause system failures, poor reliability, system breaches, or unsafe conditions.
GrammaTech’s CodeSonar is a source code and binary code analysis tool that performs advanced, whole-program, interprocedural static analysis on both source code and binary libraries. By analyzing both source code and libraries, CodeSonar enables development teams to analyze complete applications, eliminating the most costly and hard-to-find defects early in the software development life cycle.
The integration of CodeSonar into VectorCAST makes it easier for Development and QA teams to focus test efforts on areas most susceptible to errors. CodeSonar provides additional guidance through quality metrics such as static analysis warnings as well as code complexity measurements that can be used to optimize the testing process and allows organizations to produce high quality code with improved efficiency.
The VectorCAST for CodeSonar integration also eases regulatory compliance by reducing the amount of time and effort spent generating information required to meet industry regulations such as MISRA C:2012, DO-178B/C, and ISO 26262.
"The product team at GrammaTech really understands the issues with developing high integrity software,” said Jeffrey Fortin, Product Manager at Vector. “They have found innovative ways to detect problems early on and to provide the tools to solve the problems efficiently. The quality metrics that CodeSonar provides are a perfect complement to the VectorCAST test automation platform.”
“Many teams struggle with automating testing, especially when developing safety and security critical software,“ said Mark Hermeling, Senior Director of Product Marketing at GrammaTech. “VectorCAST enables test-driven development, which is a key capability in the software development lifecycle (SDLC). Taken together, VectorCAST and CodeSonar allow a development team to find more defects earlier in the SDLC, saving time and cost.”
