Lessons learned: Using a static analysis tool within a continuous integration system

Static analysis tools are used for improving software quality and reliability. Since these tools can be time consuming when used for analysis of big codebases, they are normally run during scheduled (e.g. nightly) builds. However, the sooner a defect is found, the easier it is to fix efficiently.

In order to detect defects faster, some analysis tools offer an integration with the integrated development environment of the developers at the cost of not always detecting all the issues. To detect defects earlier and still provide a reliable solution, one could think of running an analysis tool at every build of a continuous integration system.

In this IEEE paper, we share the lessons learned during the integration of the static analysis tool Klocwork (that we are developing) with our continuous integration system. We think that the lessons learned will be beneficial for most companies developing safety-critical software (or less critical systems) that wish to run their analysis tool more often in their build system. We report these lessons learned along with examples of our successes and failures.

API essentials for every stakeholder

APIs, by virtue of their openness and utility, tend to touch many areas of an IT organization. As a result, API success usually means devising an API strategy that will serve the diverse needs of people in various roles who rely on them. The right tooling for API design and management are essential to ensure that all roles feel served by the API strategy. This can be as much an organizational issue as a technical one.

This paper reviews some of the key players who have a stake in API strategy, including API designers, integration developers, API product managers, operations leads, security architects, and enterprise architects. It looks at how an API platform (or platforms) can address the distinctive needs of each role as they come to devise and implement an API strategy.

Using IMSL C on relational data with SourcePro DB

SourcePro DB supports a wide variety of databases and can be used to retrieve, manipulate, and analyze data, including very large data, using the statistical analysis functions provided by the IMSL C Numerical Library.

This paper provides a code example that uses SourcePro DB to harvest data from a database, analyzes that data using IMSL C, and then updates the database with the processed data.

Tech tutorial: Embedding analytics into a database using SourcePro and IMSL C

There are numerous benefits to using embedded analytics including real-time analysis, faster results, better quality of data, and higher security.

This white paper describes how to implement embedded analytics within a database using SourcePro and the IMSL C Numerical Library, a native C library from Rogue Wave Software. It describes in detail how to implement a server-side native stored procedure leveraging IMSL C using a particular relational database management system (RDBMS). We then execute the procedure in RDBMS using SourcePro DB.

Overcoming relational database limitations with NoSQL

​Relational databases are the workhorses of the modern database industry. They have limitations, however, when it comes to handling some types of data, in particular the large quantities of free-form data generated through mobile technology. NoSQL databases provide solutions for some of these problems but they introduce another problem in having no single query language that drives them.

This paper examines the problem, surveys the solutions, and answers the question of how to implement the solutions through a consistent API.

Tech tutorial: Embedding analytics into a database using SourcePro and JMSL

There are numerous benefits to using embedded analytics including real-time analysis, faster results, better quality of data, and higher security.

This white paper describes how to implement embedded analytics within a database using SourcePro and the JMSL Numerical Library, a native Java library from Rogue Wave Software. It describes in detail how to implement embedded JMSL using a particular relational database management system (RDBMS). As well as query the embedded JMSL in RDMBS using SourcePro DB.
