Apex Visualforce Code Scanning directly in Force.com IDE

A year back Salesforce began supporting source code analysis on Force.com through http://security.force.com/sourcescanner. But there wasn’t any integration with the Force.com IDE.

Checkmarx, the company Salesforce partnered with to provide Force.com source scanning, has stepped up and made an offering available to all of us. For 90 days, for the first 1000 developers, they’ll give away a free version of an Eclipse plugin that can scan all Force.com code (under 100k LoC). The great thing about this is that you get actionable results, directly in your IDE, without having to cross reference line numbers in a report like you have to do today. I hope this is a great resource for all of us!

    HI Chirag,

    I tried to drag attachments from outlook application and drop into jquery droppable area. But, the dragged attachment is not recognized as a file in the ‘data’ object of drop event. Do you have any solution to fix this ?

    Hello Jagadeesh – Seems you posted your query on wrong post.

    Anyhow, outlook attachments are not allowed to be dropped /accessible by browser applications.
    The solution is
    1) to save the email attachments as files in local or share drive, and then drop them or
    2) develop a Active-X that will allow you to directly drop email attachments. But ActiveX will work only on IE and it has to be installed on every machine.
