About NPEDetector

NPEDetector statically detects the dereferences in Java programs that are safe
and those that could potentially result in NullPointerException. Designed to
be a sound verifi er, NPEDetector guarantees the safety of proven dereferences
but could imprecisely flag safe dereferences as faulty. NPEDetector is built
using WALA, Watson Libraries For Analysis.
It is a free and open source software distributed under the GNU Lesser Public License (LGPL).

For installing and using NPEDetector see our [User guide]
