New IBM tool analyzes code for mistakes as its written
IBM's Rational Software unit this week unveiled a development tool that can scan and check code as it's written to uncover errors before they make their way further into the development life cycle where fixes are far more costly.
The IBM Rational Software Analyzer automatically scans the new code up to 700 times before an application is complete. Its operation is similar to the grammar check function in Microsoft Word, according to IBM.
"We unfortunately see a lot of defects in code. You really want to be able to minimize those defects. The earlier you do it in the life cycle the less expensive it becomes," said Dave Locke, director of product marketing for the Rational operation.
