What is the objective of Static Testing

What is the objective of Static Testing? 

 The main objective of static testing is:
  • The objective of static analysis is to find defects in software source code and software models.
  • Static analysis is performed without actually executing the software being examined by the tool; dynamic testing does execute the software code.
  • Static analysis can locate defects that are hard to find infesting.
  • As with reviews, static analysis finds defects rather than failures.
  • Static analysis tools analyze program code (e.g. control flow and data flow), as well as generated output such as HTML and XML.
