Updated software adds enhanced Java, C# and C/C++ analysis

Development testing specialist Coverity has released version 7.0 of its software testing platform.

Coverity7 introduces more ways for developers to analyse their programs for any C/C++, C# and Java errors, three of the most widely adapted programming languages.

Specifically, there are now 21 new or enhanced C# analysis algorithms, and a further 17 for Java and C/C++, that aim to make it easier for developers to find critical issues that could cause apps to crash or behave unpredictably.

The updated Coverity also integrates easily with other programs like SonarQube, the Clang compiler, the Eclipse and Microsoft Visual Studio IDEs, and Coverity's other programmes such as Coverity Connect, Coverity Policy Manager and Coverity Test Advisor.

"The risks associated with poor software quality and security have never been greater, and the need for development testing in this world of Agile and continuous software delivery is business-critical to reducing this risk," said Coverity CEO and chairman Anthony Bettencourt.

"Our mission is to empower the 11m professional software developers in the world to create better software and deliver more value to customers every day."
