Performing an automated code review

In IBM® Rational® products, an automated static analysis code review lets you examine source code at any time during the development life cycle of an application. A code review ensures that the code complies with recognized coding standards, finds unwanted dependencies, and ensures that code development follows the intended structural design.

You can run automated code reviews on all the code in your workspace, on a resource working set of code, or on a project you specify to analyze dependencies between components and resolve design errors early in the development process. When you perform a code review that applies the rules that you create, you are checking to ensure that the architecture of an application has been implemented according to your specifications.
