What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature in this solution is the static code analysis. They use abstract analysis to find errors, such as out of area addressing and divide by zero… more»

How has it helped my organization?

This solution helps new developers get up to speed with the Autosar, Misra C and C++ standards quickly. As an example, if they see that they are violating a rule, they can… more»

What needs improvement?

One of the issues we have is commenting. When something is not a defect in the code, for an example. Adding a comment for that line, or if the comment has two or three… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

This is not an expensive solution for what it offers, as there are other tools that are significantly more expensive.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

What do you think of Polyspace Bug Finder?

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is finding bugs, and MISRA (Motor Industry Software Reliability Association) checks.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution has improved our adherence to coding standards.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the static analysis, and code standards checks.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see improved support for annotating "Not a bug" in the source code. Currently the line itself has to be annotated which can result in very long line comments. Which if coupled with doxygen becomes somehwat odious. This was also found to be somewhat buggy at times. Support for AUTOSAR C++14 is something that I would like to have.

For how long have I used the solution?

Still implementing.
