Static Analysis refers to the technique of reading program (Source code) programmatic-ally. This technique enables to reconstruct the structural information of a program, which then be used to extract various useful information. For eg. It is possible to validate source code against a set of best practices rules and generate a report on the number of violations and the location of such violation in the source file.
Application Mining Tools, Application Portfolio Management Products, Best Practices Validators, Automated Software Measurements and other source code related tools/products including CodeSWAT products rely heavily on this technique.
