Introduction - The Scenario…

After many months of hard work, the team has delivered a reliable software solution… But then… 2 [main] sensor 9052 exception::handle: Exception: STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION

Project Budgets & Deadlines


Root Cause Analysis‌ void initPtr(int** newPtr)

// Developer Anne

{ *newPtr = (int*)malloc(sizeof(int)*10); }

int callerX()

// Developer TIM

{ int* userPtr; int returnVal =0; initPtr(&userPtr); if(userPtr[2] > 5) returnVal = -1; free(userPtr); return (returnVal); }


Some Traditional Solutions… Peer Code Reviews – Regularly & Thoroughly!    

A lot of Manual Effort Takes a Considerable Amount of Time Additional tasks impacting project schedule Open to human error and so possibly ineffective

More Testing – Cover More Use-Cases!!    
