Coverity Launches Development Testing Platform v6.5

Coverity launched version 6.5 of their Development Testing Platform, which is an integrated suite of software testing technologies for identifying and remediating critical quality and security issues during development. The latest version features Coverity Test Advisor for change impact analysis and unit testing on high risk code, including changed code and code impacted by a change, alerting developers of code not covered by unit tests. Coverity Development Testing Platform 6.5 is available now.

Coverity Development Testing Platform v6.5 Highlights

Intelligent Code and Test Analysis
Static Analysis Verification Engine (Coverity SAVE) has been extended. It features accurate and scalable techniques in defect detection, with new analysis innovations.

Patent Pending Change Impact Analysis
Ensures code changes are sufficiently tested by automatically mapping code and function dependencies to analyze impacted code related to a change — both code that has been directly modified and unmodified code that is impacted by the code change.

Intelligent Java Quality and Security Analysis
Identifies critical quality and security issues through enhanced quality analysis and new security analysis for Java web applications, including an enterprise framework analyzer that augments static source code analysis to identify new types of defects and minimize false positives.

Patent Pending Remediation
Provides developers with accurate and actionable information to fix quality defects, security defects, test violations and third party analysis defects in a unified workflow. The platform includes a patent pending remediation engine that gives developers precise, defect-specific guidance to help them fix security defects correctly and efficiently, without specialized knowledge.

CWE-Compatibility
Coverity Quality Advisor and Coverity Security Advisor have been awarded a certificate of Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) Compatibility by MITRE.

Open Platform API
Companies can integrate third-party software analysis results into the Coverity Development Testing Platform.

Governance and Policy Management
Enables the creation of consistent development testing standards across internal and offshore teams, open source, and third-party suppliers to monitor against these standards, pinpoint areas of risk and make better release decisions.

Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) Integrations
Supports bi-directional integration with existing lifecycle tools including IDEs, source control management, test coverage, bug tracking, build and continuous integration and application lifecycle management solution to make development testing a natural part of the SDLC process.
