Few lines about Static code analysis

Welcome to CodeSpread! Static code analysis We divide the term into two parts: Static+code analysis. Static in programming can be referred to as non-running/non-dynamic and code analysis is a process where the code is analyzed for any vulnerability, also it had been always used for possible improvements. So, we can say that, it is a process of detecting errors and defects in software’s source code in a static state where the entire code base is analyzed and code flaws are exposed. Advantages: This process covers whole code base and find vulnerabilities in the code at the exact location. This process can locate anti-patterns. This process can identify performance issues and also suggest improvements. Limitations: Automated tools may not support all programming languages or compilers. Automated tools produce false positives and false negatives. Manual review or Personal review is always considered to be more beneficial and reliable than a tool. We have many Static code analysis tools available like StyleCop, FxCop etc. and using them can always take off the burden from reviewer’s shoulders...

POSTMan is required.

POSTMan is required.

Though it looks like a job posting but in developer’s world, it is a useful tool available as a chrome extension. When my friend referred it, I tried it and liked it so I recommend it every other developer. At least, many hours of efforts can be saved and obviously this is what we require from every piece of code. What is POSTMan? It is a Chrome app which let’s you help test and document APIs. I think coders might know APIs but for new developers, I have included the meaning of APIs by an example. What is API? API stands for Application Program Interface. In high level terms, we express an API as a bridge via which one Internet application can exchange information with another application . Application Program Interface standards include a set of routines, protocols, and tools for building software applications.These standards are discussed and finalized by developers team to create to an API for their program. For example: We can have ratings and reviews or ecommerce APIs developed by companies which can be integrated in our application. It is an interface that queries their database to help programmers in the integration of their applications.  These consists of specialized Web services and programs and specialized scripts that can be consumed or called in our applications and get mixed with our websites look and feel. Why POSTMan? Before I heard of POSTMan, we were doing full length coding even to test these webservices or APIs at a premature stage. If the webservice is corrupted or not returning proper results, it was only discoverable only after the coding is finished. With POSTMan, we can verify these API calls before hand with just few clicks and it provides accurate result. Let’s go through these tools. Features of POSTMan Create requests quickly. Compact layout HTTP requests with file upload support Formatted API responses for JSON and XML HATEOS support Image previews Request history Basic Auth and OAuth 1.0 helpers Autocomplete for URL and header values Key/value editors for adding parameters or header values. Works for URL parameters too. Use environment variables to easily shift between settings. Great for testing production, staging or local setups. Keyboard shortcuts to maximize your productivity Document and share APIs. Use collections to organize requests. Document requests inside collections. You can even store entire HTML notes. Postman uses Bootstrap so you can use it too to style your notes. Download and share collections with your team of developers. Installing POSTMan There are two ways to install it Open this Link:POSTMan Chrome and Click on Add to chrome. Go to Chrome extensions and Search for POSTMan and...

Unused Useful Tools in Visual Studio

Unused Useful Tools in Visual Studio

Back from a vacation is always a great and refreshing feeling. A small break always adds a new dimension to the thoughts. Lets see what we have today which we can call ‘new’ . We are good working on visual studio and enjoy doing coding because we love it the most, but we simply ignore the tools that comes as a package with Visual studio and ever uses them. Microsoft has put a lot of effort in these tools to make developer’s life easy and comfortable but we as a developer only think of making it more complex. It’s a comment out of humor and trust me,it’s not the reality. GuidGen This tool can be used to generate a GUID in a variety of formatting options.This tool is very useful in conditions where unique identifier is required to identify a component or a lot of IDs are required during testing. On the Tools menu, click Create GUID. The Create GUID tool appears with a GUID in the Result box. Select the format you want for the GUID. Click Copy and paste it wherever required in source code. ErrLook ERRLOOK is the short name for Error Lookup.It retrieves a system error message or module error message based on the value entered. On the Tools menu, click Error Lookup. The Error Lookup tool appears with a Value box. Drag and drop a hexadecimal or decimal value from the Visual Studio debugger into the Value box . Click Look Up button and ERRLOOK retrieves the error message text automatically and populates the Error Message text area. Click the Modules button to bring up the Additional Modules for Error Searching dialog. Enter the name of the desired EXE or DLL in the edit box and click Add to include the modules in your error message search. Remove a module from the list by highlighting it and clicking the Remove button. Note: Modules listed in the Additional Modules for Error Searching dialog are also searched. AtlTraceTool8 This tool is called as ATL/MFC Trace Tool. It is used to display debug trace messages in the ATL and MFC sources. Open an MFC or an ATL project. On the Debug menu, click Start Debugging. On the Tools menu, click ATL/MFC Trace Tool. Expand the nodes in the Trace List tree. The running application, modules within that application, and trace categories for each module are displayed. Use the controls in the Process group, Module group, and Category group to customize how information is displayed in the Output window for each process, module, or trace category. Click Apply. Below screenshot is taken without any MFC project and is...
