Is Software Quality Visible in the Code?
July/August 1998 (vol. 15 no. 4)
pp. 69-73
Finding and fixing software code defects is crucial to product quality. It also, however, often proves difficult and time-consuming, especially late in the development cycle. While some believe that code analysis provides a simple way to detect quality defects, Lauesen and Younessi argue otherwise. To prove their point, they analyzed datafromerror reports, and their results show that code analysis detects only a small percentage of meaningful defects.
