Urbancode Brings Painless Source Code Analysis To Enterprise Continuous Integration

AnthillPro 3.7 The First Enterprise Build & Deployment Automation Solution To Support The Seven Most Widely Used Source Code Analysis Tools

CLEVELAND, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Urbancode, leader in build and deployment automation, today announced the release of AnthillPro, version 3.7. The new release is the first enterprise build and deployment automation solution that out-of-the-box helps customers maximize their investment in static analysis by building quality and security into the application development lifecycle. Integrations with the seven most widely used source code analysis tools join a host of other out-of-the-box integrations for tools across the application development lifecycle, more than 50 in total, that improve time to value. This release also adds a new plug-in API allowing customers to create custom integrations for their internal systems using the scripting language of their choice.

AnthillPro 3.7 is the only enterprise continuous integration solution to provide rich integration with source code analysis tools. By embedding static analysis into the build lifecycle, graphing changes over time and unifying violation information with source code changes Urbancode offers unique capabilities for customers to get the most out their investment in these tools. Source code analysis tools are used to improve the reliability and security of code as well as enforcing coding standards. AnthillPro 3.7 delivers support for the commercial offerings from Klocwork, GrammaTech, Coverity and Fortify and the open source tools FindBugs, PMD and Checkstyle.

"We've had great feedback from customers about our new source code analysis integrations," said Urbancode President Maciej Zawadzki. "Making these tools a regular part of their enterprise continuous integration lifecycle will allow our customers to detect defects earlier and enforce their code quality standards. Building in quality from the beginning is another way for us to help our customers get their code to market faster."

The source code analysis integrations add to an already industry leading level of support for tools across the application lifecycle, now more than 50 in all. AnthillPro ships with out-of-the-box support for a wide range of source code management tools including AccuRev, ClearCase, Perforce and Subversion. AnthillPro 3.7 adds to this extensive list by adding support for the Git source code management system. Other integrations include support for a range of project management and issue tracking systems such as Rally, VersionOne, Jira and Bugzilla; test management systems such as HP Quality Center or Silk Central; build tools; code coverage tools; and more. By bringing together data from across the lifecycle AnthillPro offers unique visibility into the status and progress of software development projects.

"Integrating with tools across the lifecycle is a must for true end-to-end continuous integration," said Zawadzki. "Managers need visibility into every phase from code commit through to release, and AnthillPro gives them that information. Several of our customers have told us that they live off of the reports we generate."

AnthillPro 3.7 allows customers to extend the integrations even further with a new API for custom plug-ins. This plug-in API will allow user written plug-ins to be treated as first-class citizens in AnthillPro; in fact the new source code analysis integrations were all written using the new API. The ability to create custom plug-ins is an important ability for development teams that are using in-house tools.

"In-house tools remain important for many teams," said Zawadzki. "Allowing our customers to treat them as first-class citizens is another step to helping them get their builds and deployments under control so they can release with confidence."

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things’).

IoT is not about the devices, it’s about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. In his session at Internet of Things at Cloud Expo | DXWor...
