The number of defects is an important indicator of software quality. Agile software development methods put an explicit requirement on automation and permanently low defect rates. Code analysis tools are seen as a prominent way to facilitate the defect prediction. There are only few studies addressing the feasibility of predicting a defect rate with the help of static code analysis tools in the area of embedded software. This study addresses the usefulness of two selected tools in the Symbian C… CONTINUE READING
