GrammaTech CodeSonar: Integration with Microsoft Visual Studio

(Ithaca/New York, 27 November 2018)

Microsoft Visual Studio is still a dominant IDE for developers of C, C++, Visual Basic and C# code. It is also a popular for general C/C++ development even if the target application isn’t a Windows or .NET application. In fact, along with Eclipse, it’s a development environment in demand.
Paul Anderson, VP of Engineering at GrammaTech, explains in his latest publication how to integrate the Advanced Static Analysis Tool GrammaTech CodeSonar into Visual Studio.     Learn more

Crank Software Achieved Great Results with GrammaTech CodeSonar

(Ithaca/New York/USA, 9 October 2018)

Crank Software's products and services enable R&D teams and user interface (UI) designers to quickly and collaboratively develop rich, animated UIs for resource-constrained embedded devices.
Software quality and security are paramount for Crank Software. In addition, they must deliver their software with the same level of quality on over 55 different target hardware platforms.
In order to achieve their quality goals, Crank Software’s development team is using CodeSonar’s advanced static analysis capability to help find and fix quality and security issues within their code. In particular, they were looking for tools that could be dropped into their process and would quickly create improvements.
Crank’s development teams integrated CodeSonar into their production process, static analysis is used as soon as code is created or changes are made. Since issues are being caught and fixed very early in the coding process, they are seeing quantifiable results. CodeSonar is well suited for analyzing code right as it understands the code given sufficient information such as header files for the embedded OS.
As a result, of their use of CodeSonar they’ve also improved their end product and Crank Software is better-positioned for the certifications needed to drive greater adoption.

GrammaTech Extends the Reach of Static Analysis by Combining Static Analysis for Source and Binary with Dynamic Analysis

(Ithaca, New York/USA, Offenburg/Germany, 16 February 2018)

GrammaTech will soon release two new tools available to find more bugs earlier, and fix them quicker: CodeSonar/Libraries and CodeSonar/X.
CodeSonar is the first static analysis tool that can extend source code static analysis into libraries that are only available in binary form through its CodeSonar/Libraries plugin. The tool adds the capability to seamlessly switch between source and binary analysis as it examines possible paths through the program. This results in a net increase of the number of problems detected in the user’s source code. Many software development projects use binary libraries with content from third party vendors, or from existing legacy code. Examples of these include firmware, operating system libraries, graphical user interface subsystems, or middleware layers such as CORBA, DDS, MQTT or others.
CodeSonar/X is a ground-breaking new capability connecting static analysis with dynamic analysis to help software developers improve efficiency, further reduce risk and decrease time-to-market. This plug-in for GrammaTech’s CodeSonar reports state corruptions during host-based testing by monitoring memory access. It combines static and dynamic violations and reports them in the CodeSonar User Interface, helping engineers correlate and prioritize.
CodeSonar/Libraries is available now, with CodeSonar/X following later this year.
