Coverity Adds GitHub, Travis CI Integrations, Updates Testing Platform
Coverity announced new GitHub and Travis CI integrations for its recently updated software development testing platform.Coverity, a provider of software development testing solutions, announced two new integrations to help open-source software developers. The company announced two integrations for Coverity Scan, its cloud-based, open-source static analysis service. The new integrations will provide open-source software developers who are using GitHub and Travis CI with easier access to the Coverity Scan service, enabling them to create higher-quality, more secure code. The Coverity Scan service provides Coverity's development testing technology at no cost to the open-source community. The service is used by many of the industry's largest open-source projects, such as Linux, Apache and Python, which have their own development infrastructure. Yet, with the introduction of these new integrations, the Coverity Scan service is accessible to open-source projects that do not have their own infrastructure, and instead rely on GitHub and Travis CI for their source control management and continuous integration needs. GitHub is a popular, Web-based software hosting service, which has more than 4 million users who collaborate across more than 10 million repositories. Travis CI is also based in the cloud, providing a continuous software integration service to developers and currently running more than 4.2 million test builds on more than 41,000 open-source projects.
With these new integrations for the Coverity Scan service, which has scanned more than 1,200 open-source projects and found and fixed more than 51,000 defects in 2013 alone, developers will be able to use their cloud-based platforms to write their code, build their applications and find and fix high-impact defects before releasing their software.
