VE 2022 | What’s New in Code Inspection?

Visual Expert’s code scan detects vulnerabilities, bugs and maintainability issues. An interactive dashboard gathers key indicators on security, maintainability and reliability to drive remediation tasks.

The Code Inspection Dashboard enables developers to:

  • Visualize primary defects after code inspection.
  • Break down the issues detected by severity and type.
  • Estimate remediation costs and technical debts.
  • Access items that need to be fixed in the code.

VE checks your code against 300 pre-defined code inspection rules and highlights the issues. The developers can automatically locate these issues and fix them to improve code quality and security.

When developers make changes to their code, Visual Expert analyzes their impact on other objects, procedures, and methods of the application. Thus, they can quickly fix a problem without breaking their application.
