From a brief look at the types of issues found by Coverty Scan
there seems to be significant overlap with similar capabilities by JDT.
OTOH, I have the feeling that most projects only use a fraction of
JDT's capabilities, for fear of being overwhelmed by too many warnings.
If any projects consider the offer from Coverty attractive, it would be
interesting to hear - from a JDT p.o.v. - what are their expectations.
Please note, that I'm not saying, JDT can compete with each and every
possible static analysis, but learning about people's priorities
shouldn't hurt :)

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 <mailto:dvyas@xxxxxxxxxxxx>) from Coverity.
