FindBugs

áHome Page HomeáPage

Categories: Code analysis - Standards verifiers

Latest version: 1.3.5
Added 2005-03-17Updated 2008-09-18

Open-source bug finding tool for Java.
FindBugs operates on Java bytecode and uses static analysis techniques to find a variety of potential bugs.

FindBugs is based on the concept of bug patterns. A bug pattern is a code idiom that is often an error.
Bug patterns arise for a variety of reasons:
- Difficult language features
- Misunderstood API methods
- Misunderstood invariants when code is modified during maintenance
- Garden variety mistakes: typos, use of the wrong boolean operator

FindBugs doesn't focus on style or formatting; it specifically tries to find real bugs or potential performance problems.
Comes with an Eclipse plug-in.

Categories: Code analysis - Standards verifiers

Latest version: 1.1.6
Added 2008-12-13

Java implementation of the CRAP (Change Risk Analysis and Predictions) software metric.
CRAP: a mildly offensive metric name to help protect you from truly offensive code.
The CRAP metric combines cyclomatic complexity and code coverage from automated tests (e.g. JUnit tests) to help you identify code that might be particularly difficult to understand, test, or maintain ľ the kind of code that makes developers say: "This is crap!" or, if they are stuck maintaining it, "Oh, crap!".
Crap4j comes in two forms: Eclipse update and Ant task.

Java PathFinder

áHome Page HomeáPage

Categories: Code analysis - Standards verifiers

Author: NASA Ames Research Center

Latest version: 1.0
Added 2005-05-04

System to verify executable Java bytecode programs.

In its basic form, Java PathFinder (JPF) is a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) that is used as an explicit state software model checker, systematically exploring all potential execution paths of a program to find violations of properties like deadlocks or unhandled exceptions. Other than traditional debuggers, JPF reports the whole execution path that leads to a defect. JPF is especially suitable to find hard-to-test concurrency defects in multithreaded programs.

JPF is a pure Java application that can be run either as a standalone command line tool, or embedded into systems like development environments. It was mostly developed - and is still used - at the NASA Ames Research Center. Started in 1999 as a feasibility study for software model checking, JPF since then has found its way into academia and industry, and even helped to detect defects in real spacecraft.

Structure101

áHome Page HomeáPage

Categories: Code analysis - Standards verifiers

Author: Headway Software

Latest version: 2
Added 2006-06-13

Helps you understand the structure of your code-base (design, architecture).

Structure101 for Java parses your byte code and creates an implementation model of all the dependencies mapped up through the compositional hierarchy. You can browse the model and view dependency diagrams at any level - method, class, package or jar.

With Structure101 you can:
- Control architecture: See how your high-level components depend on each other and why. Find out when your architecture is accidently changed by code-level changes at the coal-face, and how to best reverse out the rogue dependencies.
- Control structural complexity: Set complexity limits at each level (method, class or package) and Structure101 will measure the degree to which any item exceeds the limits and relate this to the amount of code impacted so that you can prioritize any repair work. Discover the locations of productivity-killing package dependency cycles and analyze how to break them.

Categories: Code analysis - Standards verifiers

Author: Lattix

Latest version: 5.6.1
Added 2006-10-02Updated 2010-05-06

Enables you to analyze the architecture of your Java application in terms of the elements and their relationships (jars, packages, classes, methods, etc.).

Lattix LDM allows you to analyze your architecture, edit the structure to create what-if and should-be architectures, and then create design rules to formalize and communicate that architecture to your development organization. Lattix LDM uses a dependency-matrix approach to obtain information about an application. It displays the matrix and lets users conceptually reorganize the layers and packaging structure. Continual monitoring of an application for structural deterioration is also enabled; thereby allowing remedial action to be taken before the problem escalates to a major maintenance problem.
Lattix LDM offers a GUI as well as a command line options to facilitate integration with build tools or IDEs. Plugins for NetBeans and Eclipse are available. It also includes support for Hibernate and Spring Framework.

Jlint

áHome Page HomeáPage

Categories: Code analysis - Standards verifiers

Latest version: 3.0
Added 2005-02-06

Checks Java code and find bugs, inconsistencies and synchronization problems by doing data flow analysis and building lock graph.

Jlint consists of two separate programs performing syntax and semantic verification.
- AntiC fixes problems with C, C++, Objective C and Java grammars, which can cause dangerous programmer's bugs, undetected by compiler. It uses hand-written scanner and simple top-down parser, to detect such bugs as suspicious use of operators priorities, absence of break in switch code, wrong assumption about constructions bodies...
- The Semantic verifier Jlint extracts information from Java class files. By using debugging information Jlint can associate reported messages with Java sources. Jlint performs local and global data flow analyses, calculating possible values of local variables and catching redundant and suspicious calculations. Jlint is able to detect invocation of method with possible "null" value of formal parameter and using of this parameter in method without check for "null". Jlint also builds lock dependency graph for classes dependencies and uses this graph to detect situations, which can cause deadlock during multithreaded program execution. Jlint is also able to detect possible race condition problem, when different threads can concurrently access the same variables.

All messages reported by Jlint are grouped in categories, and it is possible to enable or disable reporting messages of specific category as well as concrete messages.

QJ-Pro

áHome Page HomeáPage

Categories: Code analysis - Standards verifiers

Latest version: 2.1
Added 2005-03-12

Toolset for static analysis of Java source code: a combination of automatic code review and automatic coding standards enforcement.
QJ-Pro's main functionality is to ensure that no errors enter the source code when it is written or modified, resulting in more reliable, maintainable, testable and portable Java programs.

The tool is based on quality attributes such as reliability, maintainability, testability and portability, that are usually defined in a so-called coding standard. QJ-Pro comes with a set of good programming practices that can be enforced automatically.
QJ-Pro analyzes your Java source code and outputs information about the quality. The amount and type of output depends on the settings of the tool and the quality of the source code. The tool is most effectively used in the coding phase of a project to prevent an expensive maintenance and testing effort later on in the development process.

QJ-Pro comes as a standalone application for Windows and Linux, and as plug-ins for Eclipse, JBuilder and JDeveloper.

Author: Technobuff

Latest version: 1.1
Added 2005-09-20Updated 2006-01-18

Requirement coverage tool that facilitates focusing on requirements as you develop code.

JRequire works on top of the JUnit unit testing framework to identify the requirement coverage in the code. This also makes JRequire useful for projects that use tools that operate on top of JUnit, such as Cactus, StrutsTestcase, etc.
From a developer's perspective, JRequire facilitates getting a view of: requirements successfully covered by code; broken requirements; requirements that are not covered.
As a project manager you get a visibility on whether you are meeting the project requirements, and the potential risk areas. In addition, as the code enhances and unit tests fail, you can identify the requirements that are at risk.

JRequire is integrated with the Eclipse IDE and Ant.
JRequire is available as Community Edition (free for non-commercial use only) and Commercial Edition.

Author: Universal Software

Latest version: 6.0
Added 2004-12-21

Generic reverse engineering software for analysis and automatic documentation of source codes (program/header/form files).
Universal Report's goal is to analyse and generate a structured and formatted overview of a given set of program codes. A session can be achieved either in a step-by-step way or in a completely automatic way.
Universal Report is not focused on a specific programming language (will run with codes in Basic, C, C++, Fortran, Java, Matlab, Pascal, Visual Basic, Borland C++ Builder, Delphi, Kylix, Visual C++, Visual Basic .Net, Visual C#, Visual J++, etc....), and you can get reports in several common formats (text, latex, html) and languages (English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian). The universality is due to heuristics that use programming languages intersection as well as possible, and examine further specific points. The tool is parameterizable both in the behavior point of view and the quality of the outputs. Moreover, some additional features are available, including spell checking, general pattern research, automatic information extraction, automatic code formating, glossary generator, graphics generator, routines reviewing system, protection with password, and more.
