Java SIG: Making Static Analysis Part Of Your Build Process



  • Speaker: William Pugh, Professor, University of Maryland


    FindBugs is a static analysis tool that finds coding mistakes in Java programs. While many individuals and small projects use FindBugs, many large projects and companies have failed to successfully incorporate it into their software development process, despite its ability to find hundreds of serious coding mistakes in their code base. I'll discuss at the role of static analysis in software development, the issue of "harmless" coding mistakes, tools and techniques for getting the most bang for your buck with static analysis, and how to convince your team to effectively adopt static analysis for defect detection.
