1 Development Testing for Agile Environments November 2011

2 The Pressure Is On More than ever before, companies are being asked to do things faster. They need to get products to market faster to remain competitive and capitalize on market opportunity. That time pressure is being felt across all phases of the software development lifecycle. Development teams need to deliver more innovation through software, and the time allotted for formal quality control is constantly shrinking. To deal with this pressure, companies are turning to Agile development methodologies for rapid iterative development cycles and the promise of improved efficiency and faster time to market. Agile: Not A Panacea The popular Agile development methodology, based on the Agile Manifesto 1 introduced in 2001, provides a way to achieve iterative and incremental development where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing, cross-functional teams. However, Agile development is not a panacea. While it s designed to increase efficiency, it can also introduce risk as testing cycles get condensed and serious bugs may be overlooked. As the testing cycles are squeezed, more of the burden for code quality assurance is getting pushed into development. With the extra pressure on developers, they can t afford the time and effort required for manual testing. They need an automated approach for assuring the quality and security of their code. Code Assurance through Development Testing Development testing enables developers to assure the quality, security and safety of their code, during development, by using techniques for scalable and automated defect detection. As the code is compiled, it is analyzed for defects. Developers can then quickly address high severity issues without sacrificing time to market. Waiting for QA or Security teams to find defects later in the lifecycle can result in rework and expensive project delays. Defects in code that are detected during development are significantly faster and cheaper to fix than those found in QA and worse when found by the customers. For a development testing solution to be effective, it should provide developers with relevant, accurate and actionable information. For developers to adopt development testing it must seamlessly integrate into the existing software development process and be integrated into the IDE on their desktop and their continuous integration server, such as Jenkins. The Coverity Development Testing Platform Coverity is the market leader in development testing with over 1,100 customers and five billion lines of code tested. Coverity has served as the quality gate to the shipment of billions of products across a wide range of industries. Coverity enables organizations to establish quality, security and development efficiency thresholds in Coverity Integrity Control, test against those policies with the Coverity analysis engines, and provide organizations with visibility into the areas of risk in their project, team or even software supply chain. Coverity Integrity Control is specifically designed to help managers and executives increase their visibility and control over projects by viewing the performance against the established policies. Coverity s testing platform helps developers increase their productivity and the quality of their code by enabling them to quickly identify quality, security and safety defects in their code from within their IDE or as part of the continuous or central build system. It utilizes sophisticated algorithms to identify and triage high risk defects that could result in software crashes, security breaches or safety issues. It enables users to find hard to spot issues such as null reference pointers, memory leaks and potentially exploitable security flaws in the largest, most complex code bases. Coverity ships with a highly tuned version of FindBugs with no extra installation required. Now developers can manage Coverity and FindBugs-found defects from the Coverity centralized defect management console, Coverity Integrity Manager, in a common workflow. Developers are presented with accurate and actionable information about the severity of defects, potential impact and where they occur in the code. This detailed and intuitive information helps developers get to work quickly on resolving the most critical defects and keep the product schedule on track. Plus, developers can identify all of the places the defect exists in the code base across projects and products which saves valuable time. 1 Beck, Kent; et al. (2001). Manifesto for Agile Software Development. Agile Alliance. 2

3 Visibility and Control Through Coverity Integrity Control, managers and executives get visibility into the overall quality of internally developed code and thirdparty code across development sprints. Deciding when a project is ready for a release is a key principle in Agile. In Scrum, one of the most common frameworks for project management used in Agile software development, teams hold daily meetings to report progress and make decisions. Coverity Integrity Control provides rich data and metrics about the quality of each sprint. This information is critical when trying to balance the need for rapid time to market with the need for acceptable quality levels. Coverity Integrity Control 2.0 provides a graphical representation of project risk 3

4 Integrated Into the Software Development Lifecycle With so many extra pressures on developers today, they need solutions that will tie into their existing software development tools and processes. The Coverity Development Testing Platform integrates seamlessly with common development practices and market leading tools. Desktop Analysis Coverity enables developers to analyze their code in minutes, depending on the code size and complexity, and remediate any defects found from within the Eclipse or Visual Studio IDE on their desktop. Developers can view the defects, understand their severity and impact and link to the Common Weakness Enumeration, an industry-standard knowledge base, for additional information. Once the code has been analyzed on the desktop, the developer can check it into the continuous integration server or central build system where the analysis engine can evaluate the cumulative changes of the entire development team. To save time, developers can also choose to utilize incremental analysis which only analyzes the files which have been changed or those affected by the change instead of the entire code stream. By scanning the code from the desktop, developers are able to address security and quality issues immediately. Developers can test their code from within the Eclipse or Visual Studio IDE on their desktop 4

5 Continuous Integration One of the most common practices in Agile development is continuous integration (CI). It s been embraced by the majority of the Agile community because it enables a faster, automated central build process. By increasing the frequency of integration that CI provides, delivery teams improve their visibility of the overall quality of the software. Integration issues, build problems and code conflicts are surfaced more quickly allowing faster remediation. In order for a development testing solution to work in an agile environment, it is essential that the analysis is done as frequently as the source integration happens. The analysis needs to be automated, fast and scalable especially when the development team is large. Coverity Static Analysis is integrated with Jensen, which enables an automated continuous process for code assurance. The Coverity Plugin for Jenkins is available on the Jenkins site 5

6 Each time a central build is generated, Coverity can automatically test the code for high severity defects. Users have the flexibility to adjust the testing to conduct the most complete analysis or only identify the highest risk defects. Once defects are identified, they are published to a defect database for tracking and management. Developers can receive automatic notification so they can quickly begin the triage or inspection process and fix new defects. In addition, Coverity offers an extensible platform which enables it to easily be integrated to other continuous integration servers. Continuous Integration Regularly generates build. Developer Finds and fixes defects withing their IDE on desktop. Checks in code to CI server. Coverity Static Analysis Automatically tests code each time the build is generated. Coverity Integrity Manager Visibility into new defects, severity, potential impact and where they occur. The Nightly Build Coverity s parallel processing capabilities allows development teams to take advantage of the multi-core architectures that speed up the nightly build process. A major advantage of this capability is that organizations can analyze even the largest code bases as part of their nightly build process. During the nightly build, Coverity s testing platform analyzes the code for errors which may result from the integration or conflicts in the integrated code streams. Project administrators can review the overall code quality of the project, triage and assign defects which need resolution to the appropriate developer. Seamless Integration The Coverity Development Testing Platform easily integrates into existing development infrastructure including Hewlett Packard Application Lifecycle Management (HP ALM). By integrating Coverity development testing results into the HP ALM and HP Quality Center workflow, development and QA have a single platform and common workflow for collaboration through visibility into defects identified in development. With every code change, Coverity automatically tests the code for defects, surfaces them in HP ALM, and links them to the corresponding business requirement so development and QA know where to focus their efforts, reducing the risk of releasing defects into production without impacting time, cost or speed of deployment. This level of collaboration, defect traceability and visibility within the existing workflow is critical to Agile organizations trying to rapidly ship products to market while maintaining acceptable levels of quality. The Coverity Development Testing Platform also integrates with the most common components in the developer s environment including source control systems, bug tracking systems, IDEs and build systems. 6

7 Summary Companies have adopted Agile development methods to meet the demand for delivering more innovation faster to the market. Regardless of the development method, the cost of finding and fixing defects increases exponentially as software moves through the development cycle, from design and coding to release. Developers are acutely feeling the pressure and can no longer afford to wait until the end of a formal QA cycle or security audit to be informed of defects which need to be addressed. They need an automated solution for assuring the quality, safety and security of their software that keeps up with the rapid iterative development process. The Coverity Development Testing Platform enables developers to test early and often so they can assure code quality at each development sprint. By finding and addressing the most critical issues early, defects are cheaper and faster to fix. In addition, seamless integration with existing Agile development methodologies and tools helps maximize development productivity.
