Static analysis is a method of debugging by examining source code before a program is run. It happens by analyzing a set of code against a set of coding rules. Static analysis and static code analysis are often used interchangeably, along with source code analysis. Explaining Static Code Analysis Static analysis, as a concept, seems to earn itself a particular reputation. The general population may regard programming as a technocratic, geeky pursuit. But inside the world of programmers, it has that equivalent rap. It is a geeky subject even among geeks. This type of analysis addresses weaknesses in source code that might lead to vulnerabilities.

Source code analysis is the automated testing of a program's source code. Its purpose is finding faults and fixing them. Thus, before the application is sold or distributed. What is Source Code Analysis Source code analysis is the automated testing of a program’s source code with the purpose of finding faults. This removes the need for creating and using test cases, and may separate itself from feature-specific bugs like buttons being a different color than what the specifications say. It concentrates on finding faults in the program that may be detrimental to its proper function like crash-causing lines of code. Benefits of Code Analysis Automates certain test processes to save time and manual efforts by defining project related rules
