  • Stock:

A suite of testing and analysis tools for Visual Basic, Visual C++, Java, VBScript and JavaScript/JScript that includes error detection, performance tuning and unit testing.

Micro Focus DevPartner Studio enhances Microsoft Visual Studio Professional, Premium and Ultimate editions with an award winning suite of code quality features that increase development productivity. DevPartner Studio automatically detects and diagnoses software defects, performance problems and security vulnerabilities early in the development process—when
problem resolution is most costeffective. With expert advice, coding standards
and best practices built in, DevPartner Studio Professional Edition enables Windows application teams to improve software quality, maximise developer productivity and deliver superior software reliability, performance and security. 

Key Benefits: 

  • Automatically detects defects, memory leaks, performance bottlenecks.
  • Provides built-in expert coding advice, coding standards and rule-based guidance.
  • Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server enhancements encourage coding standards.
  • Available in Studio Pro Edition.


DevPartner - Features

Key Features: 

  • Preview source code, detect errors—DevPartner Studio assists development teams by automating the code review process. The code review function quickly examines source code from a variety of DevPartner Studio assists development teams by automating the code review process. The code review function quickly examines source code from a variety oflanguages, including Visual Basic .NET, C# and ASP.NET, checking each source line against a detailed base of coding standards and best practices. Development teams select the predefined code review rules that apply to their processes or define their own standards and practices by creating new rules.
  • Identify and resolve security vulnerabilities—DevPartner Studio scans ASP.NET application source code to find security problems before they become deeply embedded in the code base. By scanning application source code at compile time, DevPartner can pinpoint unsecure coding practices to the exact method and line of code. Security scanning checks each line of ASP.NET code for nearly 200 security vulnerabilities and
    suspicious behaviors such as incorrect use of cryptography APIs, unsecure use of .NET code attributes and permissions and unsecure use of COM and P/Invoke.
  • Locate errors and memory leaks automatically,correct problems quickly—DevPartner Studio error detection monitors a running application to detect problems in native C/C++ code and provides guidance on correcting these problems. Using DevPartner Studio error detection with BoundsChecker technology, developers can locate a large variety of C/C++ problems such as memory leaks, interface and resource leaks, pointer errors, uninitialised memory and overruns. Developers can also validate Windows APIs and system calls to avoid known problems and help diagnose runtime errors. DevPartner Studio error detection monitors native application calls that cross the managed boundary into .NET code. It provides valuable information on the frequency of crossed boundaries to help developers determine when native code should be migrated to .NET code, as well as when errors from native code cause problems in managed code. 
  • Locate performance problems—DevPartner Studio performance analysis helps developers quickly isolate performance bottlenecks in single- and multi-tiered applications down to the problematic component, method, or line of code. Combined with an intuitive user interface, DevPartner Studio performance analysis lets developers trace application operations and differentiate between application and operating system calls  and between CPU-bound algorithms and input/output-bound waits, for rapid identification of performance issues.
  • Optimise .NET memory utilisation—DevPartner Studio memory analysis graphically displays the amount of memory used at runtime and identifies the entry points, methods and lines of code that allocate memory, allowing developers to quickly locate inefficient code. It provides developers with detailed information to help determine where managed memory usage issues exist. Real-time graphs provide a live, dynamic view of the application’s memory use, which objects and how many are currently allocated and how much memory is used by each of these objects. This provides developers with an overall look at how memory is managed during program execution. With an automatically
    generated and accurate profile of memory usage, developers can save
    time improving runtime performance and memory utilisation.
  • Deploy thoroughly tested applications— DevPartner Studio coverage analysis automatically pinpoints untested code by capturing and combining testing sessions for applications and components across users, languages and application tiers. It identifies which portions of the code are tested redundantly and which portions are not tested well enough or at all. With DevPartner Studio, testing teams focus their activities where they are most needed to improve in order to ensure
    application quality. 
  • Penetrate large applications—64-bit process support gives DevPartner Studio capabilities to identify bugs within very large applications, removing the 2GB address ceiling. BoundsChecker works
    inside native or .NET hosted 64-bit applications to provide the same memory, resource and API misuse detail as in x86 processes. Performance, memory and coverage profilers likewise provide scalability in tackling large memory footprint applications. The only limits are t
  • Easily diagnose system configuration issues—DevPartner Studio system comparison helps developers understand the differences in configuration and system level settings that affect the stability of their applications. Through the use of system snapshots, the system comparison feature can compare the configuration of two systems, or show configuration changes that have occurred on a single system over a period of time. DevPartner Studio also includes a snapshot Software Development Kit (SDK) that enables the system snapshot capability to be customized and embedded into production-level applications. This allows developers using DevPartner to extend the reach of their troubleshooting expertise beyond the development lab.Source code peer reviews are a valuable mechanism for finding errors and ensuring compliance with coding standards and best practices. DevPartner’s code validation feature automates the code review process to raise code quality and save valuable development time. The automated code review process scans application source code to detect coding errors and ensure compliance with coding standards and best practices.
