Greenlight for Eclipse

Veracode Greenlight for Eclipse is a plugin for the Eclipse IDE. You can install the plugin to perform Greenlight scanning from within the IDE. Veracode Greenlight is designed to scan a file or small package. For this reason, initiating a scan at the project level is restricted. For project-level scans, run a Static Analysis in the Veracode Platform.

The Veracode Greenlight plugin has minimal impact to your local system. If your environment is outside the above requirements, and you are interested in the Veracode Greenlight plugin, email [email protected] regarding your interest, your IDE tools, IDE version, and programming languages you use in your job.
