comment Are code reviews considered part of QA?
@dzieciou: there are tools that can do check for some architectural design constraints while performing the code analysis (via just static analysis - parsing the code). CAST Software for instance. Obviously, only some of them (standard pitfalls + tool customized ones).

@dzieciou: You need to create an action plan to have a roadmap on how to reduce your application technical debt. In case of big applications, having 20k critical violations (that's a real sample value) is something can not be just delegated to the development team. QA team should prioritize them according to some target; for instance, to fix first all violations related with security or performance, or both of them for some specific application modules. This is QA territory in my opinion.

@dzieciou: Static Code Analysis - programming standards review (coding rules according to technology, architectural design...). A "manual" code review can not afford such amount of processing work. I mean "full application source code" automated review... A 20MLOC application... for instance, where code review related with peer programming is clearly not enough.

Bytheway...Thanks for the wellcome :) Just to point out, it is important to clarify what we understand when we are talking about a SQA team... I'm not pointing to the "testers", but the guys in charge of analyze the test results, and analysis code results in order to decide if the delivered software should be released

There is no conflict at all with that proposal. I mean, of course developers should minimise violations before release... who's responsible for accepting/rejecting a release? A mean, a SQA team should analyze several metrics: test results, violations reports...
