Code Review

Parasoft's automated code analysis relieves developers from having to perform line-by-line inspections during peer code reviews, freeing them to focus on higher-level analyses that require human intelligence. With automated checking for compliance to the team's and organization's development policies, the team can begin code reviews by discussing interesting findings from the automated code analysis results, then move on to examining design, algorithmic, and implementation issues. This aspect of the peer code review is supported by Parasoft's Code Review module, which automatically identifies updated code, matches the code with designated reviewers, and tracks the progress of each review item until closure. By automating critical workflow components, we allow the team more time to focus on productive tasks.

Automated Code Review

Parasoft's automated code analysis checks code as it is written to prevent entire classes of errors and ensure that code meets uniform expectations around security, reliability, performance, and maintainability. This typically relieves developers from having to perform line-by-line inspections during peer code reviews, freeing them to focus on higher-level analyses that require human intelligence. With automated checking for compliance to the team's and organization's coding policies, the team can begin peer code review by discussing interesting findings from the automated code analysis results, then move on to examining design, algorithmic, and implementation issues.

Peer Code Review

Parasoft automates and manages the peer code review workflow. Our Code Review module, which automates preparation, notification, and tracking of peer code reviews, addresses the known shortcomings of this very powerful inspection method. It automatically identifies updated code by scanning the source control system (if the organization reviews code after source control check in) or the local file system (if code is reviewed prior to check in), matches the code with designated reviewers, and tracks the progress of each review item until closure. With the Code Review module, teams can establish a bulletproof review process-where all new code gets reviewed and all identified issues are resolved.
