Press Release

Across-the-board new product releases to further enhanced static analysis solutions


24 February 2015 / Nuremberg — PRQA | Programming Research, a global leader in static analysis, announces further enhancements and additions to both its Framework environment and QA·Verify code management web interface. These latest releases further strengthen PRQA’s complete code management solution, making inspection and compliance with coding standards more effective, improving integrations and giving greater visibility to stakeholders within the decision-making process.

The new desktop Framework environment provides a new component-based plug-in architecture incorporating QA·C and QA·C++ components and making it easier to add additional third party components to facilitate integration into the broader software development tool chain. This cross-platform, multi-interface format enables the analysis of mixed language (C and C++) projects. Users have the option of command line or graphical user interfaces as well as full integration with Microsoft Visual Studio and Eclipse. Other recent enhancements include easier integration into build automation systems, better control over the distribution of project configurations among development team members and further improvements to the coverage of key coding standards such as HIC++ and MISRA.

QA·Verify has added a range of enhancements to deliver sophisticated software quality management. A new heat-map display provides a visual enhancement to the existing drill-down capability from top-level quality presentation into precise detail. New search capabilities make it easy to focus on key issues in code or analysis messaging. Integration into the broader software ecosphere is enhanced with a capability to link QA·Verify annotations to an external issue tracking system such as JIRA. A new automatic scheduling capability can deliver by email an immediate reporting of project status to interested parties. To suit large installation sites, user management is enhanced with developer views limited to sub-sets of a large project. Handling of large sequences of snapshot uploads to the central project repository is also improved with new facilities to hide and remove unwanted history.

Fergus Bolger, PRQA’s CTO stated, “The adoption of both our Framework environment on the developer desktop and QA·Verify for the wider stakeholders has ramped up rapidly. In these latest releases we have responded to the feedback from our expanding customer base, streamlining the integration into our customers’ development processes and improving the usability of our solution from the perspective of the end-user.”

Framework is an integral part of our latest QA·C and QA·C++ releases. QA·C 8.2.1, QA·C++ 3.2.1 and QA·Verify 2.0 are available now. Further details are available at our products page.

Fergus will also be presenting his paper on “Controlling deviations in a MISRA compliance environment” at this year’s Embedded World Conference.
