Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps
The code clone analysis tool searches through all the projects that are contained in a solution using heuristic search techniques, which also shows code that is similar, rather than just code that is exact. Specific sections of the code can be searched, as well as entire projects and solutions.
One of the new features in Visual Studio Studio 11, Code clone analysis, enables developers to identify similar code sections within their code. Often developers mistakenly copy the same code into their app through cutting and pasting, and code clone analysis simplifies the process of finding the duplicates.
