Static Analysis Metrics

Static Analysis metrics are collected with tools that analyze the source code and check for: potential bugs, bad practices and conventions. In SA2 it as been decided to follow the approach of using, for each programming language, the standard checks performed by widely used, free, tools. These tools and checks are reported in the following sections.

These tools will be integrated into Etics and their configuration adapted in the course of the project.

The initial proposal is to collect one metric (raised warnings) per tool.


CPPcheck (potential runtime bugs)


Three complementary tools have been initially chosen, Findbugs, PMD and Checkstyle.

FindBugs (potential bugs)

PMD (bad practices/potential bugs)

Checkstyle (naming, comments and format conventions)
