2012 Eighth International Conference on the Quality of Information and Communications Technology (2010)
Sept. 29, 2010 to Oct. 2, 2010
The quality of source code is a key factor for any software product and its continuous monitoring is an indispensable task for a software development project. We have developed a method for systematic assessing and improving the code quality of ongoing projects by using the results of various static code analysis tools. With different approaches for monitoring the quality (a trend-based one and a benchmarking-based one) and an according tool support we are able to manage the large amount of data that is generated by these static analyses. First experiences when applying the method with software projects in practice have shown the feasibility of our method.
