SANTA CLARA, CA -- (INTERNET WIRE) -- 04/03/2001 -- WebGain, Inc., a provider of e-business automation software, today announced the introduction of WebGain Quality Analyzer, a Java-based product designed to enable Java development teams to improve the quality and performance of enterprise-class Java applications.

The WebGain Quality Analyzer suite of applications consists of three main components: WebGain Audit, WebGain Cover, and WebGain Metrics. Each is geared to assist managers and developers at specific stages of application development. WebGain Audit qualitatively evaluates Java source code for style, programming errors and performance weaknesses, using standard or customized Java principles and coding practices. WebGain Cover measures the coverage of Java code and can collect method and statement execution counts from applets, servlets and applications running on any Java virtual machine on a network. WebGain Metrics calculates global complexity and quality metrics and provides object-oriented metrics tuned for Java.

"Quality Analyzer is designed to help development teams deliver higher quality applications more rapidly by helping them find programming errors before they finish coding,” said Ted Farrell, CTO of WebGain. “This can make it possible for enterprises to develop more consistent development practices.” WebGain Quality Analyzer will be commercially available April 4, 2001. The software is written in Java for compatibility with conforming Java platforms. Quality Analyzer has been tested with JDK 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3 VMs, utilizing Linux, Solaris, HP-UX, Irix, Windows 95/98, Windows 2000 and Windows NT operating systems. The product will be included at no extra cost in new editions of WebGain Studio, while a standalone version will also be available.
