The AUTOSAR guidelines are a set of rules to help developers in the automobile industry write safe C++ code. In a previous project, the Eclipse plug-in CodeAnalysator was created. It offers an infrastructure to implement different guidelines by different corporations and organizations like AUTOSAR. Before we started the project, only a few rules were implemented as a proof of concept. Using this foundation, we created checkers for multiple rules from the AUTOSAR guidelines. These checkers perform static code analysis to mark C++ code that violates one of those rules. By analyzing C++ code, studying examples and standards we evaluated all possible cases that are relevant to the respective rule. We also examined the Abstract Syntax Tree to see how such problems can be identified. Some of the problems can be solved automatically through refactorings. For those problems we created quick fixes. These quick fixes offer the user to automatically manipulate the AST in order to turn a violating piece of code into a compliant one. Over the course of this project we created checkers for 25 rules, 12 of which we offer at least one quick fix for.
