Klocwork has announced availability of Klocwork Solo, a downloadable Java static source code analysis (SCA) tool that automatically identifies critical bugs and security vulnerabilities in Java source code quickly and accurately. Additionally, Klocwork's newest product ships with a built-in ability to understand code being developed for the Android platform.
Klocwork Solo is fully integrated with the Eclipse IDE and provides the following capabilities:
- Automated detection of more than 200 different security vulnerabilities and quality defects without the need to run or generate test cases;
- Ability to identify issues specific to Android mobile device development, including a range of issues that can cause runtime failures, such as null object references, resource leaks and usage of already freed resources;
- Persistent analysis results which allow for tracking of issues over time, thus maximizing productivity.
"The market for mobile applications is exploding, driving up the demand for more effective developer productivity tools that enable developers to write better code" says Klocwork's Mike Laginski. "Klocwork Solo was designed to address the specific needs of the individual Java developer. Now developers can access our enterprise-grade Java SCA capabilities via an easy to use, downloadable tool."
