Abstract

Static Code Analysis (SCA) is the process of analyzing software source code for potential defects. This project implements a plugin for and analyzes one such SCA tool, Sonar, with the goal of determining its effectiveness in correctly identifying problem areas in code. Real world data which was collected at PayPal after setting up a continuous integration system using Jenkins CI and Sonar was used as the basis for this project.
