Static Analysis using Jenkins job

Clang scan-build job

Clang is a free open-source cross-platform static analyzer, which comes as a part of so called “LLVM-stack”. Unlike Cppcheck, Clang Static Analyzer is much slower, but it can catch much more critical bugs.

  1. Install a Clang Scan-Build onto the Jenkins master or slave which will be executing your XCode builds.
  2. Install a Clang Scan-Build plugin which will simply archive and make available the analyzer results on the Jenkins server. Go to Manage Jenkins ->Manage Plugins ->install Clang Scan-Build Plugin
  3. Configure the jenkins using JJB(Jenkins Job Builder).It takes simple descriptions of Jenkins jobs in YAML format, and use them to configure Jenkins jobs.
