Coverity, Inc., the leader in improving software quality and security automatically, today announced expanded capabilities of the company's popular open source code analysis site: http://www.scan.coverity.com. Beginning today, the open source Scan site will provide static source code analysis for Java-based open source projects as an extension of Coverity's relationship with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security under the 'Vulnerability Discovery and Remediation Open Source Hardening Project.'

By expanding the Scan site to support Java projects from the open source community, Coverity will help developers uncover previously undetected critical defects, thereby improving the overall security and quality of open source software.

Coverity's Scan site has already made a significant impact on the security of open source projects based on C/C++. Currently, more than 250 C/C++ open source packages are included at the Scan site, representing more than 55 million lines of code. To date, open source project maintainers have fixed more than 7,500 security and quality defects identified by Coverity Prevent SQS (Software Quality System), the technological underpinning of the Scan site.

"As open source software continues to win mindshare with commercial and government users, code quality and security are ongoing requirements," said David Maxwell, open source strategist for Coverity. "We are eager to share the capabilities of Coverity Prevent SQS with open source Java developers to help further improve the security and quality of their projects."

Coverity Prevent SQS checks one hundred percent of the paths and values in C, C++ and Java software projects. Coverity's unique combination of analysis engines based on dataflow and Boolean satisfiability analyzes software dependencies, key third-party libraries and projects spread across multiple development groups. Coverity's low false-positive rates, ability to find critical must-fix errors, and defect resolution tools make developers' lives easier and improves their ability to find and fix defects.
