Coverity is providing a static analysis service, called Coverity Scan, for open source projects. They have created a Hudson plugin that will automatically start the scan of an Eclipse project during your build.
We have installed this plugin on the Hudson sandbox server so Eclipse projects can test the Coverity Scan service. Details on how to enable the scan are below. If you have any questions, please contact Dakshesh Vyas (dvyas@xxxxxxxxxxxx) from Coverity.
Register your project with Coverity Scan
Note - Make sure to use the same project name as the project name in ‘Eclipse’ job
Enter the ‘Project token’ received at the end of registration process into the build step of ‘Coverity Scan’ plugin
Note - Project token and Project name is being used to check for valid registration.
That’s it – Every time build is run, Coverity Scan will perform static code analysis.
