The latest release of DTP Engines build on Parasoft’s innovative approach to continuously improving software quality processes.
In this release:
Understanding Change in Continuous Delivery Environments
As organizations implement continuous software delivery platforms, conventional reporting mechanisms based on data aggregated over time are no longer viable. Understanding the risk that incremental changes introduce from build to build becomes critical as the release velocity accelerates. Organizations need immediate visibility into changes in coverage, changes in test regressions, and the ability to quickly identify which tests need to be rerun. The updates in this release help you understand these changes and identify any issues that need to be resolved in order to mitigate risk and accelerate delivery.
Reporting Static Analysis Violations by Build
In this release, we’ve extended the concept of reporting build-based data. DTP Engines can now report new, fixed, and existing static analysis violations by build, enabling organizations to not only address potential defects more efficiently early in the SDLC, but also correlate violations with change to pinpoint specific areas of the code where defects may have been introduced.
A Better Desktop Experience for Developers
Developers want to write code, not be burdened with more tools and processes that slow them down. This release introduces the following IDE-based features and enhancements enable developers to create defect-free software faster.
Continuous Quality Assistant (CQA)
CQA enables developers to get immediate feedback on the code they’re working with. CQA analyzes code as the developer performs actions, such as opening and saving files, prior to running a full analysis. CQA executes targeted, high-performance rules as controlled through the test configuration, keeping analysis overhead low.
Other Updates and Enhancements
New and Updated Code Analysis Rules
