We continually work with our customers to understand their greatest pain points, and engineered solutions that would help make their jobs in improving security and code quality more effective while saving them money.

Instantiations, Inc., a leading provider of Eclipse-based commercial software solutions, today announced version 6.0 of its popular CodePro AnalytiX™ product. The new features help developers decrease potential code security vulnerabilities early in the software development lifecycle, improve Java code quality and reduce development costs through increased developer productivity. The company also announced new versions of CodePro Profiler™, WindowBuilder™ Pro, WindowTester™ Pro and RCP Developer™.

The latest version of CodePro AnalytiX adds a number of new OWASP-based security auditing rules, support for mock objects, new rules for web services auditing, and extended JUnit testing support for Spring, Struts and EJB (Enterprise Java Beans) frameworks.

"With each CodePro release, our goal is to add features that make it easier for developers to be increasingly productive at detecting, reporting and repairing security vulnerabilities and code defects so they can create the highest quality Java code at the best value," said Eric Clayberg, Instantiations senior vice-president of product development, and co-author of Eclipse Plug-ins. "We continually work with our customers to understand their greatest pain points, and engineered solutions that would help make their jobs in improving security and code quality more effective while saving them money."

What's New in CodePro AnalytiX v 6.0:
CodePro AnalytiX helps developers detect, report and repair security vulnerabilities and code defects as they write code or during the build process. It is the most comprehensive code security and quality product for the Eclipse platform. Through intense automation of audits, metrics, and best practices, CodePro AnalytiX ensures superior software quality and maximum developer productivity throughout the entire code development cycle. With this upgrade, Instantiations extends the number of security audit rules to 183, bringing the industry's most comprehensive Java code auditing library to nearly 1,200 rules.

  •     New Security Audit Rules - Version 6.0 adds 25 more OWASP-based rules that help enterprises meet security policy compliance while exposing high-risk runtime vulnerabilities. In addition, a new Threads & Synchronization audit rule category was added.
  • Web Services Audit Category Added - with 28 new audit rules.
  • Mock Objects - help quickly and safely simulate the behavior of other objects. Avoid live testing when it would be time consuming, a security issue, or even dangerous -- but still check behavior and ensure code quality.
  • Extended JUnit Testing Support for Popular Web Application Frameworks -- JUnit test generation now supports the most popular frameworks, including Spring, Struts and EJB (Enterprise Java Beans).
