About the Code Analysis Tools

The code analysis tools help you make your application more reliable by using static, dynamic, and code coverage analysis to detect many common coding errors, including memory leaks and memory access violations. Previse performs static analysis at compilation and Discover performs dynamic analysis at application runtime to identify code quality issues. The Uncover tool analyzes code coverage data to provide information about functions that are not covered by your test suite and tells how you can benefit by covering those functions.

Use the Code Analyzer graphics tool or the new codean command-line utility to view the three types of analysis to get a comprehensive view of your application's vulnerabilities so you can improve its correctness and reliability.
