When QA managers want to measure the quality of their code they start looking for open source tools for static analysis. They want to perform analysis on their projects and get an indicator of how badly or well they are developed in order to make the right decisions. Of course this is not enough, as static analysis is just one small part of the QA process. Anyway, this is not the topic right now (we will discuss this and other topics in further articles). As for now, we will focus on Optimyth’s most powerful static analysis engine . checKing static analysis engine.Read More
Software quality is the bread and butter of Optimyth Software. All our products have the common goal of helping our customers measure and improve the quality of their software.
Over the years we have built and evolved our products with the customer always in mind. In fact we are proud to say that every single company in our customer base has improved our products in one way or another.
When you want to measure quality you need a “measuring tape”. We have learnt that it’s not that simple to choose one, though. This is where our customers have contributed a great deal and as result we have come up with the “universal measuring tape”: the checKing Quality Model or CQM for short. read on and learn what it is.Read More

Some of these ideas are rather controversial and even biased depending on who suggests them. What everyone seems to agree is that the Western economy must win on competitiveness through productivity and quality.Read More
Repeat after me until it comes true: parsing source code is an already solved problem. Yes, unfortunately it is not true. Parsing code is still far from being a straightforward activity in the 21st century. Shame on us.
I am pretty sure that you can enumerate a series of parser generators and regular expression libraries that saved the day for many of you in the past, but I am convinced that it is not enough at all.Read More
