Press release from: Coverity

/ PR Agency: PR-Agency Lorenzoni GmbH
Coverity, Inc., the leader in improving software quality and security automatically in C/C++ and Java, today announced plans to release new Symbian C++ software defect detection capabilities in its Coverity Prevent SQS solution. Coverity Prevent SQS is the leading static source code analysis solution that will enable the automatic detection of code defects that can occur during Symbian OS development. Symbian OS is the market-leading operating system for advanced, data-enabled mobile phones known as smartphones.

Coverity’s highly accurate representation of a software system, or Software DNA Map, allows complex defects in source code to be automatically identified with unmatched precision and accuracy. As part of today’s announcement, Coverity will develop new code analysis capabilities designed specifically for Symbian OS.

Building on the proven ability of Coverity Prevent SQS to accurately identify defects in C/C++ and Java, the new Symbian C++ defect detection capability will identify a greater number of defects that can occur in code developed for Symbian OS.

“Defect detection for Symbian C++ will enable Prevent SQS to deliver the most accurate static analysis of Symbian code available to date,” said Seth Hallem, CEO of Coverity. “By adding these new capabilities to Prevent SQS, developers can focus more on Sym-bian OS development and less on identifying and managing code defects.”

Symbian selected Coverity Prevent SQS in 2005 to provide static code analysis for its internal development teams. Coverity professional services will collaborate with all Symbian C++ developers in the industry to implement best practices for ensuring code quality and security. Additionally, Coverity announced today that it will be certifying the quality of code for Symbian through its Coverity Certified program.

Being Coverity Certified provides third-party validation of code quality. Coverity Certified organizations can proudly show that they have joined a select group of leading compa-nies that have a dedicated and proven commitment to the highest standards of software quality and security.

Coverity’s new Symbian C++ defect detection capabilities will be available to Coverity Prevent SQS customers in early 2008.
