Overview
Bottom rule

IBM Rational Logiscope tackles software quality head-on, providing a comprehensive suite of highly customizable static and dynamic testing tools to ensure that:

  • Latent bugs and faulty constructs are detected and eliminated
  • Software complies with required coding standards, whether they are personal or internal standards, or industry standards such as MISRA.
  • Complex and error-prone areas of code are identified at the earliest stage and corrective actions taken.
  • Code review is automated and effort is focused on problematic area helping you adopt verification processes that are described by international standards such as SEI/CMMi, ISO/IEC 9216 and 9001, DO-178B, IEC 61508, EN 50128.
  • Unnecessary duplicated code are identified and removed, therefore optimizing your testing effort and maintenance effort overtime.
  • Testing is both comprehensive and efficient by identifying untested pieces of code.

The proven verification capabilities of IBM Rational Logiscope help you optimize expensive development resources to reliably deliver on-time, on-budget, and to specification.

IBM Rational Logiscope currently supports four programming languages: C, C++, Java™, and Ada. It is available on Windows®, UNIX®, and Linux® platforms and includes four different products:

  • IBM Rational Logiscope RuleChecker, for code rule checking
  • IBM Rational Logiscope QualityChecker, for code quality metrics
  • IBM Rational Logiscope Code Reducer, for finding code similarities
  • IBM Rational Logiscope TestChecker, for dynamic test coverage analysis

IBM Rational Logiscope RuleChecker V6.6 introduces support for MISRA C++ code rules checking, allowing organization to comply with this industry-standard set of rules. IBM Rational Logiscope RuleChecker now allows verifying MISRA code rules on code generated by IBM Rational Rhapsody.

IBM Rational Logiscope Code Reducer is a new and innovative Logiscope module that helps organizations finding code duplication and poor design across their projects by comparing code structures. This is essential for optimizing testing effort and overtime significantly reducing software maintenance cost.

Description
Bottom rule

IBM Rational Logiscope RuleChecker

IBM Rational Logiscope RuleChecker automatically checks your code against a set of project-defined programming rules in order to avoid language traps and code misunderstandings. It is delivered with a configurable set of coding and naming rules including MISRA C and C++ coding rules, and also works with code generated by IBM Rational Rhapsody, allowing you to confirm compliance with MISRA code rules.

IBM Rational Logiscope QualityChecker

IBM Rational Logiscope QualityChecker uses source code metrics to locate complex, error-prone modules, provides graphic results to assess architecture of the application and detailed design. This helps you diagnose problems and improves decision-making, for instance, decisions to rewrite a module or to test it more thoroughly. The software metrics for Quality Modeling are ISO 9126 compliant and configurable to project-specific requirements.

IBM Rational Logiscope Code Reducer

IBM Rational Logiscope Code Reducer is a code similarity search tool that allows users to:

  • Search for all similar pieces of code in a given set of files
  • Search for code similar to a reference code in a given set of files
  • Compare source code files
  • Search for differences between two versions of a set of source code files

IBM Rational Logiscope Code Reducer identifies similar constructions, and provides you with information that can help you factorize and reduce your source code size.

Immediate benefits are:

  • Reduction of testing effort, no need to test similar pieces of code several times
  • Reduction of maintenance effort on a smaller source code, no need to fix the same bug several times in similar piece of code
  • Improvement of code understandability when similar parts have been factorized
  • Ease of reuse of factorized code in other developments

IBM Rational Logiscope TestChecker

IBM Rational Logiscope TestChecker supports structure-based testing and test coverage analysis. It quantifies test completeness and shows uncovered source code paths. By uncovering bugs hidden in untested source code, it improves program reliability. IBM Rational Logiscope TestChecker is based on source code instrumentation techniques that are adaptable to your test environment constraints, both on host and target platforms.

The quality of a software product is constructed throughout its lifecycle. Quality requirements should be expressed and defined during the earliest phases of development. They should be taken into account and verified in all subsequent phases. IBM Rational Logiscope is a toolset used to verify that quality requirements are fulfilled in the developed software.

Quality requirements mentioned during the specification phase are formalized during design and development phases.

Design and development phase

Using IBM Rational Logiscope during design and development phases allows validation of the quality of the software architecture and coding. Using IBM Rational Logiscope during these phases makes it possible to detect critical elements at the earliest possible stages and to act before corrective and maintenance efforts become prohibitive.

Developers and designers are becoming aware of the importance of mastering quality in the same way that the development of a function must be mastered. With IBM Rational Logiscope, users learn as they advance through the project.

The documentation drawn from these phases constitutes the reference elements for subsequent phases and for the software maintenance period. Logiscope helps to draft standardized in-house documentation for improved communication between different groups involved in the project. Test strategies are defined while the software is being constructed. IBM Rational Logiscope helps to draw up these strategies and to adapt the test effort to software complexity.

Test phases

Testing is more efficient with IBM Rational Logiscope, which can be used to measure the completeness of test coverage with respect to software structure. The objective assessment of test efficiency, in terms of paths covered, makes it possible to ensure that a satisfactory level of testing has been obtained. When used by testers, it helps to define complementary tests in order to guarantee a satisfactory level of reliability. In particular, it can be used to draft test reports.

Verification and validation

Verification and validation must ensure that all features defined in the specification are fulfilled. Among other things, validation must verify that quality requirements are met. Logiscope measures the product's intrinsic characteristics (ability to analyze, changeability, testability, and so on) and the test completeness. These measurements can be compared with standards defined at the start of the project in order to meet quality requirements.

Maintenance

Maintenance alone could be considered as a software production cycle, except that it is based on existing software. If the existing software is a program whose quality has been assured, maintenance will take place naturally with the only preoccupation being not to introduce regression. This can easily be verified by using IBM Rational Logiscope. However, if the state of the existing software is uncertain, a study will have to be carried out in order to plan the maintenance effort. IBM Rational Logiscope can rapidly propose an evaluation of the software quality.

Project management

IBM Rational Logiscope provides project management groups with results necessary for good development either in terms of cost and deadlines or of quality. With concise results allowing quality to be assessed, project management itself monitors the progress made in the project.

Today's development standards and best practices all agree that implementing and enforcing a formal verification and review process is required.

  • Compliance to standards and best practices
    • CMMI, capability maturity model (new, integrated version) for process improvement
    • ISO/IEC 12207, international IT standard on information technology - software lifecycle processes
  • Compliance to industry regulations
    • RTCA/DO-178B for Aerosystems
    • IEC 61508 for safety critical systems
    • EN 50128 for railways
    • MIL-STD 498, the military standard for use by the US Department of Defense and others
    • MISRA, from the Motor Industry Software Reliability Association
    • ECSS from the European Cooperation for Space standardization

Beyond compliance to regulations, IBM Rational Logiscope provides tangible benefits that impact the bottom line.

Outsourcing and acquiring

  • Stay in control of outsourced development
    • Quantifiable metrics as contractual basis.
    • Analysis and acceptance of code deliveries.
    • Prevent unnecessary code duplication that degrades the maintainability of the code base. Code duplication is very often an indicator of bad maintenance practices.
    • Prevent code quality and structure degradation. The cost of maintaining poor quality code can waste all initial benefits of outsourcing.
  • Organizations that maintain third-party software -- Objective measures to estimate development and maintenance effort of code.
  • External analysis before deciding to buy or acquire external technology versus maintain in-house code

Lowering the software development lifecycle costs

  • Earlier defect identification lowers cost and accelerates time to market.
  • Specific coupling analysis allows reducing portability costs (new platform).
  • Improved code maintainability significantly decrease the maintenance effort.
    • The bug correction effort ratio for "good" code versus "poor" code is around 8x.
    • Up to 30 percent gain has been observed.
  • Identification of similar source code used across projects helps code restructuring and promotes code reuse policy. It reduces testing effort and maintenance cost while increasing the overall code quality.
  • Web services, re-usable code, and component-based development all need to be "defect-free" and have an extended life cycle. Team needs both minimal bugs and optimal maintainability.

Select appropriate testing strategy

  • Better test strategy optimizing the mix of functional testing and structure-based testing
  • Identify dead code to reduce maintenance and testing cost
  • Focus testing effort: test design, test efficiency, and regression testing

Process improvement

  • Faster, intelligent deployment -- Logiscope comes with an out-of-the-box, adaptable quality model that analyzes combinations of metrics and rules for advanced diagnosis.
  • Improve peer review process
    • Code should be reviewed by experienced team members (trained eye).
    • These key people are too valuable to have sifting through piles of code.
    • There is a risk of burnout and boredom.
    • Logiscope provides fast focus on "usual suspects" with filtered graphical representations, increasing efficiency, and motivation.
  • Introducing and enforcing corporate coding rules is part of due diligence
    • For the same reason, IBM does not allow writing specifications in slang.
    • Cultural change in moving away from "artist" developer.
    • Company turnover is often high.
  • Helps educate employees to avoid dangerous and error-prone constructions
  • Provides metrics to drive process improvement and overall efficiency; improve corporate quality model with lessons learned (CMMI 4 and 5)
  • Enables management with automatic up-to-date reports
