January 29, 2008 -- Klocwork, Inc. has announced the availability of Klocwork Insight, a major product release that is designed to dramatically change the effectiveness of source code analysis technology. Klocwork Insight brings the full power of Klocwork's system-wide source code analysis capabilities to the developer desktop. This patent-pending innovation combines the productivity benefits of fast, local desktop source code analysis with the accuracy of system-wide analysis, transforming source code analysis from a build audit report to a true, developer-support tool.
Software security and quality remain a prevalent concern among today's enterprises as organizations seek best-of-breed tools to improve their software development life cycle (SDLC). Klocwork Insight provides a new approach to source code analysis by enabling organizations to find the most complex cross-system bugs right within a developer's local build, ensuring vulnerabilities and defects are never propagated in the code stream. Klocwork's approach to source code analysis lets developers use an all new collaborative, peer-to-peer environment that provides an up-to-date view of the entire system from their individual workspace.
With the new developer desktop capability, Klocwork Insight provides the developer community with the opportunity for increased collaboration and greater connectivity to static analysis, enabling development organizations to contain defects at the point of creation rather than having to check-in buggy code to find out that it is broken.
Klocwork Insight's new reporting interface aggregates information on what is found by Klocwork, and then fixed on the desktop before code is ever checked in to the integration build. The interface also provides a breakdown by component, team or geography, enabling organizations to better understand the improvements that are being made throughout their software development process.
Klocwork Insight also introduces an all new declarative language that can be used to extend Klocwork's products to completely customize the analysis of C, C++ and Java for any code base. This high-level language allows developers to easily extend Klocwork's extensive built-in library by adding their own checkers to meet their unique organizational, regulatory or code base requirements.
Klocwork is available now in two versions: Klocwork Insight for C/C++ and Java and Klocwork Insight for Java.
