Host-based code analysis

Similar to the Developer for z/OS® client, the Developer for z/OS host supports running code analysis tools, which are provided as a separate product, IBM® z/OS Source Code Analysis, FMID HAKGxxx. A benefit of doing code analysis on the host is that it can be integrated in your daily batch processing.

The following code analysis tools are available on the host:
  • Code review: Using rules with different severity levels, code review scans source code and reports rule violations.
  • Code coverage: Analyze a running program and generate a report of lines that are executed, compared to the total number of executable lines.
