Renraku — the One Static Analysis Model to Rule Them All

Yuriy Tymchuk, Mohammad Ghafari, and Oscar Nierstrasz. Renraku — the One Static Analysis Model to Rule Them All. In IWST’17: Proceedings of International Workshop on Smalltalk Technologies, 2017. Details.


Most of the static analyzers are monolithic applications that define their own ways to analyze source code and present the results. Therefore aggregating multiple static analyzers into a single tool or integrating a new analyzer into existing tools requires a significant amount of effort. Over the last few years, we cultivated Renraku — a static analysis model that acts as a mediator between the static analyzers and the tools that present the reports. When used by both analysis and tool developers, the single quality model can reduce the cost to both introduce a new type of analysis to existing tools or create a tool that relies on existing analyzers.
