What is Static Code Review ?
Code review is a systematic examination of source code with an intention to find and fix Vulnerability.Code reviews are primarily done during development phase to improve and secure the software or application. The cost of fixing the vulnerability after release to customer is nearly ten times the cost of the fixing it during development. Finding and fixing Vulnerability early in the software development phase can lead to large cost savings.
Static Code review tools facilitate the code review process by helping the reviewers to review code effortlessly in a collaborative fashion. Apart from early identification and removal of Vulnerability, Static code reviews help in increasing shared understanding of code base across team members. This makes team members more agile to work across multiple features of a project
