An Independent Study: CodeSonar is the best static code analysis tool
in finding safety problems in embedded software

CodeSonar   (Offenburg/Germany, 12 February 2015)
An Independent Study from the InfoTechnology Center of one of the largest car manufacturers confirmed that CodeSonar is the best static code analysis tool in finding safety problems in embedded software. The car manufacturer measured how well different static analysis tools perform against the benchmarks. The performance of CodeSonar, as well as five other tools was evaluated in the following categories:
  • Static Memory
  • Dynamic Memory
  • Numerical (most int, some float)
  • Resource Management
  • Pointer Related
  • Concurrency
  • Inappropriate Code
  • Miscellaneous
In this quantitative evaluation of Static Analysis Tools, CodeSonar was ranked first in three categories: Dynamic Memory, Concurrency, and Inappropriate Code and second in three further categories: Static Memory, Resource Management, and Miscellaneous. In particular, CodeSonar was particularly highlighted for being extremely good at finding concurrency problems; it found more than twice as many as its nearest rival.
Our objective at Verifysoft is to give as much information as possible to our prospectives and customers in order to help them to choose the best tool for their specific needs. Unfortunately one of CodeSonar´s "competitors" (headquartered in San Francisco) doesn´t want having their tool compared to other tools. For this reason they requested that we no more link to the independant study. We have removed the link from our website, but we leave it to our prospectives and customers to decide for themselves if they want to do business with a company which fears such a comparaison...

Testwell CTC++ Test Coverage Analyser: Version 7.2 Available

Testwell CTC++   (Offenburg/Germany, Tampere/Finland, 18 March 2014)

Verifysoft and Testwell announce the availability of Testwell CTC++ version 7.2. Testwell CTC++ is the leading Test Coverage Analyser for host and on-target code coverage.
The new version introduces a test case concept and the ctcxmlmerge tool.
The test case concept facilitates collecting coverage data and reporting it per user-defined test cases.
The ctcxmlmerge tool facilitates getting one combined coverage report over whole code base, which has been built and tested for different configurations. Previously, due to configuration-specific conditional compilation and macro values in the code files, CTC++ could see such files to be different, and supported coverage reporting only per one configuration at a time.

Additionally there are some bug fixes and enhancements to handle various demanding or "extreme corner" usage situations that have come up with the users. Along with this basic CTC++ v7.2 the CTC++ Host-Target add-on (HOTA) which allows for on-target test coverage has been upgraded from v5.0 to v5.1.
