San Francisco, CA, United States, 2008/05/27 - A Dr. Dobb's Journal Magazine Vendor Perspectives Webinar - Join Coverity on June 3rd for a web seminar "Finding Runtime Concurrency Errors in Multi-threaded Applications".
Broadcast date: Tuesday, June 3, 2008
Broadcast time: 2:00 PM ET / 11:00 AM PT
Duration: One hour
Overview: As more and more companies develop and deploy multi-threaded Java applications on multi-core hardware, the job of ensuring the quality of these software systems has become more challenging. Multi-threaded software is more complex, impossible to test exhaustively, and introduces a new class of critical concurrency defects-race conditions and deadlocks-that can cause data corruption or system failures.
Join Coverity on June 3rd for a web seminar "Finding Runtime Concurrency Errors in Multi-threaded Applications." In this session Thomas Schultz of Coverity's Advanced Technology Group will offer a presentation and demonstration of Coverity Thread Analyzer for Java, a new dynamic analysis solution for multithreaded Java applications that automatically and predictably detects existing and potential race conditions and deadlocks that can cause deadly application behavior.
Register today and find out how to:
• Automatically and rapidly detect serious concurrency errors
• Avoid data corruption and application failures
• Sharply reduce the problem of testing billions of unpredictable thread interleavings
• Reduce risk of migration to multicore systems
• Combine dynamic and static analysis to improve overall code quality.
