SonarSource delivers what is probably the best static code analyzer you can find on the market for VB.NET. Based on Microsoft Roslyn compiler front-end, it uses the most advanced techniques (pattern matching, dataflow analysis) to analyze code and find code smells, bugs and security vulnerabilities. As for any product we develop at SonarSource, it was built on the following principles: depth, accuracy and speed.

SonarVB covers well-established quality standards. The SonarVB capability is available in Visual Studio
for developers (SonarLint) as well as throughout the development chain for automated code review with
self-hosted SonarQube or on-line SonarCloud.


SonarVB supports all the standard metrics implemented by SonarQube including Cognitive Complexity. Additionally, it supports the import of Microsoft Visual Studio, dotCover and OpenCover Coverage reports.
