A consortium of companies grouping KaliTerre, TOCEA, the engineering school of ICAM Nantes and SIGMA Informatique have launched the project "Code Vert" which aims to develop software that will verify the "Sustainability" of a software. This tool uses a repository of best practices for software design more friendly environmental from its establishment phase until its waste phase. This project, accompanied by Atlanpole, has been accredited by the competiveness cluster "Image & Réseau" in December 2011 and started its operational phase in February 2012.
The application is developed to accompany a tooled consulting approach to which the repository developed and validated in the project applies directly to the code (development phase). The tool is capable to analyze a developed code (by parsing), then to apply the rules (rules engine). Beyond the ratings given to the program (scoring tool), the goal is to make corrections and / or examples to highlight a code "clean" and advance skills in software engineering virtuous.
Thierry Leboucq, KaliTerre director and project director, said: "This project is primarily a research project that identifies, validates existing good practice by measuring the effects (physical measurement, measurement of consumption of components) by the application of "Green Pattern" instantiated by language. The challenge then is to describe the implementation of these rules in static analysis tools code. "
