Ensuring Code Quality in Multi-threaded Applications: How to Eliminate Concurrency Defects with Static Analysis

Ensuring Code Quality in Multi-threaded Applications: How to Eliminate Concurrency Defects with Static Analysis

Cover
Developers moving to multi-threaded applications often encounter an increasing amount of concurrency defects. Such defects possess an intense underlying complexity and are nearly impossible to replicate in a dynamic testing environment. They then slip easily past manual code review and traditional testing techniques, adversely affecting software quality.

This paper will review the most common pitfalls that software developers face when creating multi-threaded applications. Explore the innovative new software analysis capabilities that are designed to help development organizations manage the new world of multi-core hardware effectively. Discover how static analysis techniques can detect complex concurrency defects earlier in the development lifecycle, accelerating an organization's ability to produce and release multi-threaded applications.
