DECODER joins the OW2 open source code base after three years of EU-funded R&D

Designed since January 2019 as part of a Horizon 2020 European collaborative research project,
the DECODER platform continues its development within the OW2 open source code base.

Paris, May 5, 2022 – OW2, the community promoting open source software for information systems, is pleased to welcome the DECODER open source project, a result of three years of research funded under the European Horizon 2020 programme - see DECODER public deliverables provided during this period. The DECODER software project intelligence platform and its tools for DevSecOps teams are managed by the OW2 member CEA List LSL (software security and safety laboratory) based in Paris-Saclay.

DECODER provides a comprehensive open source framework for DevSecOps teams, leveraging NLP (Natural Language Processing) technologies, and cutting-edge AI (Artificial Intelligence) and machine learning techniques. Its goal is to provide greater efficiency throughout the application lifecycle, enhancing code understanding, readability, reuse, compliance and security.

Title: DECODER, an OSS Platform to reduce the complexity of source code
Speaker: Pierre-Yves Gibello (OW2)
Official EBDVF website

With the European DECODER Project, an ongoing H2020 collaborative research and innovation project, all stakeholders in business applications can benefit from advanced analysis in order to produce more stable and secure services.

Turning as best as possible code artefacts into formal data reduces the maintenance costs and thus the total costs of ownership of software improvements. Thanks to the DECODER platform, developers, testers and maintainers can collaborate around a central persistent knowledge database. They obtain an augmented view of integrated software code through a combination of Natural Language Processing techniques, Machine Learning and Formal Methods.
