Though IT departments have matured these last 10 years and have now no doubt on the benefits of a continuous control of code quality, three major concerns were still remaining, without any tools able to effectively addressing these needs:
Scertify™ TechDebt / Refactoring Assessment is a free & open source tool designed to provide development teams with clear insights on these concerns.
Using the results of an analysis performed on a source code, Scertify™ TechDebt / Refactoring Assessment identifies the parts of your code that can be refactored, and indicates the possible level of automation by using the unique technology provided by Tocea’s tools (see Scertify™ Professional).
Based on the data contained in our Technical Debt benchmark repository, Scertify™ TechDebt / Refactoring Assessment enables developers to compare the quality of their code with hundreds of other anonymized projects from the open source and software industry.
This plugin can be run with simple scripts on Build / Continuous Integration tools, such as Maven, Ant or Jenkins.
Scertify™ TechDebt / Refactoring Assessment comes out of the box, without any configuration needed. On the contrary, Scertify™ will help you to improve the settings of your preferred Static Code Analysis tool, in order to use a relevant quality profile, finally!
Scertify™ TechDebt / Refactoring Assessment generates intelligent remediation task plans to tackle Technical Debt according to your strategy: Safe (corrections with low impact on code), Fast (quick win), Exhaustive (corrections from A to Z), Security (only critical security violations).
Scertify™ TechDebt / Refactoring Assessment runs as a Sonar plugin. The Scertify™ dashboard is available with a simple click from the Sonar platform.
You will find the installation & usage documentation of Scertify™ TechDebt / Refactoring Assessment on the project’s page at Sourceforge.net.
