FOSS lifecycle management with Whitesource

Reviewed 7 years ago

Using Whitesource to manage the process of analysing FOSS for a large product with hundreds of opensource dependencies. Makes life much easier and helps you cover all dependencies much more accurately. Some processes are still a bit course (though improved dramatically over the past 18 months) Refresh performance might be a bit slow when there are very large dependency lists. Best product out there for FOSS lifecycle management

Tons of false positives, prepare to spend hours fixing it manually

Reviewed 4 years ago

After much manual configuration, a nicely formatted output that looks reputable. I could have just made my own in excel a lot faster.

Pros

Fast, quick reviews of your code. They do a good job of putting all the relevant reports and dashboards in front of you quickly. Once you manually fix everything, it can look really good.

Cons

The false positives are awful. I had to spend hours and hours manually fixing everything it mis-identified - dozens of libraries and thousands of source files. If you use a library not in its database... too bad. You can make a support request and wait for them to enter it for you, whenever they get around to it. The search is pretty awful. There is some kind of syntax to using it but when I asked...

It aggregates my licenses in one centralized place. The software helps me to generate the reports for many requests that I have inside my organization. It also helps me to identify the changes between versions and compare them.
