ARCAD Code Checker
Source Quality Checking
Checks that code is clean and highly maintainable
ARCAD Code Checker performs automated analysis of source code. It grades code efficiency, adherence to standards and maintainability. It can also look for user defined code characteristics and grade compliance to them. This allows developers to better assess the quality of legacy application code before changing it. It also helps development managers ensure all developers are making code changes which adhering to standards.
Messy code with low maintainability increases long term costs
Deadlines and other pressures can cause developers to implement the quickest and easiest solution rather than the best overall solution. This creates a technical debt which will need to be repaid in the future. An excess of technical debt is a major cause of application errors and downtime. It also increases the probability that future projects will miss deadlines because this debt will need to be repaid before further changes can happen.
