Static and Dynamic Code Analysis

In the fast-paced world of software development, delivering high-quality code quickly is essential. However, writing code that is both correct and efficient can be a challenge, especially as projects become more complex. Static code analysis is a type of software testing that can help to identify errors and potential issues in code. By reviewing the source code without having to execute it, static code analysis can be used to find bugs, performance issues, and security vulnerabilities. As a result, it can save time and improve the quality of your organisation’s software products. Static code analysis can be used in conjunction with dynamic code analysis, which analyses programmes while they are running.

For these reasons, many companies rely on static and dynamic code analysis to ensure that their products meet the highest standards.


About Static Code Analysis

At softScheck Singapore, there are a variety of tools used to identify insecure coding practices and ensure that the source code is secure. This includes:

  • Style Checking Tools: Ensure that code is compliant with the programming rules and standards set by the organisation.
  • Semantic Analysis tools: Used to supplement syntax trees with extra information in order to check for statically identifiable bugs. Data type problems, non-initialised variables and unused methods are all typical examples of the sorts of bugs that can be found using this technique.
  • Deep Flow Static Analysis: The most effective type of tool for identifying bugs in software. The semantic analysis is supplemented by the generation of a “control flow graph” and the conduction of a data flow analysis. This allows for the identification of complex bugs such as buffer overflows, race conditions, and other types of vulnerabilities.
