SonarSource delivers what is probably the best static code analyzer you can find for VB.NET. Based on the 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 with everything we develop at SonarSource, it was built on the principles of depth, accuracy, and speed.

SonarSource's VB.NET analysis covers well-established quality standards. This 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 cloud-based SonarCloud.


SonarSource's VB.NET analysis 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.
