Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 46103] New: Review various possible bugs detected by Jtest
Date Tue, 28 Oct 2008 01:24:50 GMT

           Summary: Review various possible bugs detected by Jtest
           Product: Batik
           Version: 1.7
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P3
         Component: Test Tools
        AssignedTo: batik-dev@xmlgraphics.apache.org
        ReportedBy: mirko@raner.ws

Hello, Batik Developers!

I work as a Systems Engineer for Parasoft, and we regularly test our Automated
Error Prevention products on open source projects. We just finished running our
flagship product, Jtest, on some projects and I chose to have a look at Apache
Batik. This exercise already helped us to find some false positives in our
analysis, but I thought I'd share the results with the developer community as
well. That way everybody benefits. My initial run using Parasoft's Recommended
Rules produced over 6000 warnings, but since nobody would look at such a large
amount of warnings I boiled it down to a configuration that included only the
10 most essential analysis rules and produced 66 warnings.

I have attached the report that was produced by Jtest. While it is possible
that all the detected bugs are effectively inconsequential the report points to
a number of problems where code clearly does not do what it is supposed to do.
So, I definitely suggest that somebody familiar with the code base have a look
at it.

The report is based on the sources for Batik 1.7, so some of the line numbers
might have shifted in the meantime. Please let us know if this analysis proved
valuable for you or if you found any false positives or have other related
