LDRA has launched TBvision, a product that enables companies to easily see how the source code performs against security vulnerabilities, fault-detection and adherence to the required quality standards.

Aimed at enhancing collaboration and communication between development teams, TBvision enables managers, team workers and individual developers to collectively monitor testing and quality metrics.

Recognizing the increased need for graphical ability to show code quality, fault detection and avoidance measures, TBvision incorporates next-generation reporting capabilities. It enables users to quickly and easily view results in call graphs, flow graphs and code review reports. These graphical feedback mechanisms represent the system and show project teams the quality of the code generated in an easy-to-read, intuitive format.

Using TBvision, software teams can effectively enforce industry or company coding standards, which deliver tangible benefits that assist in assessing the quality of the code produced and deliver immediate return on investment. LDRA supports the MISRA-C:1998 and MISRA-C:2004, HIS (Herstellerinitiative Software), GJB (Chinese Military Standard) and the CERT C secure coding standard for the C programming language. LDRA allows users to enforce many of the known security vulnerabilities identified in the SAMATE Reference Dataset (SRD).

The LDRA tool suite promises the most comprehensive C and C++ coding standards enforcement available on the market today and this has now been enhanced to support the imminent launch of MISRA-C++:2008. LDRA also worked with Lockheed Martin to develop the JSF AV++ standard.

With a mission to assist in the creation of zero-defect software development, LDRA continues to advance automated code analysis and testing tools. LDRA will target TBvision for the highly complex security- and safety-critical markets common in industry sectors such as military and aerospace, automotive, communications, infrastructure and medical.
