Hi,
Our verification team uses Coverity Software to run a static analysis and triggered hundreds of warnings that I need to fix.
The problem is that I don’t have access to coverity and must submit my code every time to the main branch to trigger coverit report.
In other words there is no way to do it locally and verify what I have fixed then submit my code.
I wonder if there is any Free tool (trial version) which is very comparable to Coverity in the sense that it generates the same type of warnings and errors  ? preferably an eclipse plugin
(For java code)

Thank you for_yan that's very helpful.
I'm just trying to find a way to test locally using a free tool (trial) that's very comparable to coverity
i.e. using similar strategy to find warnings so that in the end, the effort that I make to remove warnings locally will be taken when Coverity runs.
