All safety guidelines are defined as extensive sets of specific requirements to the source code or design of the application. Many of these requirements can be checked automatically by using static code analyzers.
Static code analyzers are tools that can analyze the source code and warn developers if they detect code patterns that violate code quality requirements. They are extremely efficient when it comes to error detection and prevention. Since they can be run before the code is built, a lot of errors are fixed at the earliest stage of development, without involving the time-consuming testing and debugging process.
Besides error detection and prevention, static code analyzers are used to prove that the code complies with target requirements and guidelines during the certification process.
In this recipe, we will learn how to use a static...
