Static Code Analysis Tools

Betreuer: Prof. Dr. Bettina Buth

Nowadays tools for static code analysis like Findbugs, Lint, Checkstyle, aiT or various Clang-Plugins can support the developer during work as they show potential errors in the code base before execution. These tools simple perform analysis on the code or on the binaries. This thesis should evaluate the tools on their real potential to find and report potential problems. The results of the Embedded Systems Engineering laboratory can be use as target application of the tools, but the study is not limited to that scenario.
