Coverity is a professional, high quality tool that finds problems in C++ code by simply looking at that code (static analysis [wikipedia]). It can be used by projects within or connected to EP-SFT, as well as by LHC experiments, to track down bugs in code before anybody ever runs it.
EP-SFT provides the infrastructure to scan EP-SFT related projects (e.g. ROOT, Geant4, CASTOR, xrootd, cernvmfs; requires registration) and serves as a knowledge base for Coverity installation and use. If you are interested in taking advantage of this tool for your software please contact Gabriele.Cosmo@cern.ch.
