Coming Soon: Code Inspection!

Visual Expert will soon bring a new 'Code Inspection' feature set

This will greatly help improve the security and quality of your code:

  • In short, Visual Expert will analyze each method/script based on 300+ rules (see below).
  • For starter, VE will detect security and maintainability issues, as well as bugs.
    Later on, syntax error detection and code metrics will be included.
  • At first, code inspection will be done via the Visual Expert UI.
    Then, VE will generate HTML reports.
  • Finally, a Jenkins Plug-in will be released to perform Continuous Code Inspections.

Below is an example of a security vulnerability found in a PowerBuilder application:

Passwords have been hardcoded in 2 PowerScripts.

In both cases, Visual Expert will highlight the issue in the code.

You can then open this script directly in the PB IDE to fix the issue.
