Code-quality-tool provider PRQA revamps its static analysis tools

October 02, 2013 // By Nick Flaherty
PRQA | Programming Research has re-designed its range of static analysis tools to use a component plug-in architecture.

This gives a greater consistency across products and ease of use through improved user interfaces alongside higher functionality, says the company. The new architecture decouples all the source code parsers from the generic framework, but the parsers remain unchanged from the current releases, ensuring that static analysis results are unaffected and continue to provide the same consistent and reliable output.
The changes include a new user interface with cross-platform graphical user interface with integrated source code editor and cross-platform command line interface, as well as full integration with Microsoft Visual Studio and Eclipse, so developers now have all the features of the cross-platform GUI from within their favourite development environment.
There are new cross-platform, cross-interface, multi-language project formats and project engines, allowing mixed source code (C and C++) projects, as well as a portable project format allowing project configurations to be distributed among development team members.
