LDRA, the leading provider of automated software verification, source code analysis and test tools, today announced the immediate availability of compliance tools for the recently announced MISRA C:2012 guidelines for safety-critical software. LDRA offers the most comprehensive and automated approach to meeting the MISRA C rules, with products that include a standalone rule checker as well as a portfolio of tools that integrates MISRA C compliance into the software development lifecycle. With LDRA’s updated products that incorporate the latest MISRA C rules, developers can be assured that they are following the most stringent coding quality standards to mitigate liability and risk in software applications on which human lives depend.
MISRA C is a software development language subset originally created to promote the safer use of the C programming language in safety-critical automotive applications. The first version was released in 1998 (MISRA C:1998) to target C90, and the 2004 version (MISRA C:2004) provided extensions and improvements. Today, MISRA is a widely adopted, de facto safe-coding standard designed to help achieve software quality in automotive, aerospace, industrial, medical, defense and rail applications that have a high cost of failure.
“LDRA has played an important role in the development and completion of MISRA C:2012,” commented Steve Montgomery, Chair of the MISRA C:2012 Working Group. MISRA is about collaboration and the latest version of MISRA C has benefited greatly from the involvement of all parties, including engineers across a number of sectors and disciplines. It is that expertise that will help programmers make safer use of the features of the C language.”
LDRA offers a full range of tools for every MISRA C version, including rule-compliance traceability across the software development lifecycle and standalone rule checking
MISRA C helps software development teams create software applications that are of the highest quality, that have fewer defects and that are more maintainable, readable, consistent and verifiable. Because of LDRA’s long-standing leadership in developing and supporting safety- and security-critical industry standards, LDRA has been strongly committed to MISRA, providing multiple employees as members to the MISRA C Working Group and MISRA C++ Working Group, as well as chairmanship of the MISRA C++ Working Group.
The LDRA tool suite® is the only solution that lets developers integrate MISRA C rules into the software development process, with full MISRA C compliance from requirements traceability through coding, analysis, testing, verification and certification. Developers also have access to a cost-effective option in the standalone point tool LDRArules™, which is easily configurable for complete MISRA C rules or any user-defined combination of in-house programming templates and industry-standard rules. With these LDRA products, programmers have a consistent development environment for multiple projects, from those based on the newest MISRA C rules through legacy projects that use any previous MISRA C version.
MISRA support available now in the LDRA tool suite and LDRArules
The LDRA tool suite assists with the eight primary tasks required to achieve an organization's software development and maintenance goals. All versions of the MISRA C rules, including MISRA C:2012, are completely integrated into the upgraded tool suite for efficient compliance checking within a familiar development environment. LDRArules is a cost-effective, standalone programming rule checker that brings together a collection of rules from a broad spectrum of programming standards, including MISRA C:1998, MISRA C:2004, MISRA C:2012, MISRA AC AGC, MISRA C++:2008, CERT C, CERT J, CWE, HIS, JPL, JSF++ AV, High Integrity C++, SPARK Ada subset and the Ravenscar Profile. MISRA C:2012 will be made available to all existing LDRA maintenance customers of these products.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
