This paper presents the design of SAFE (Scalable and Flexible Error Detection), a static analysis tool targeting lightweight program verification and bug finding for Java. The tool utilizes two types of analysis: a simple "structural" checker based on pattern-matching, and an interprocedural flow-sensitive dataflow solver which integrates typestate checking and alias analysis. We describe how the tool integrates into a team development platform for analysis of batch builds, and user interface support built on the Eclipse platform.
