How to Submit Your Klocwork Community Content

Static Analysis

Klocwork 2020.1 introduced the Klocwork Community: A set of almost 200 new checkers and coding standard taxonomies developed by partners and professional services that are used by the worldwide Klocwork customer base.

Perforce has expanded on the certified Klocwork-developed checkers and is now providing access to sets of complimentary checkers and taxonomies. This should help developers save time, as they won’t need to create and deploy their own checkers and taxonomies.  

In addition, Klocwork Community will provide users with a more direct way to interact with Klocwork along with the opportunity to help shape the rules that the static analyzer will enforce. However, this will not impact the certified set of core checkers for safety- and security-critical development requirements.
