Coverity Prevent for C#, JNBridgePro 4.0, and XMLSpy Version 2008 Release 2
A rundown of some new releases.
Coverity Prevent for C#
Coverity Inc. has announced Coverity Prevent for C#. Prevent for C# is based on an entirely new analysis engine designed and optimized for Microsoft .NET-based applications. It handles features of the C# language such as operator overloading, properties, and idioms for iteration and resource management. Prevent for C# also automatically finds third party .NET assemblies to ensure a complete analysis result, no matter how complex the app.
Coverity Prevent for C# automatically analyzes large, complex C# code bases and detects critical, must-fix defects that could lead to system failures, memory corruption, or performance degradation. Prevent for C# requires no changes to existing build processes or code, easily integrates into existing build processes, and requires little or no additional hardware.
