Subject: Re: [sarif] First Draft Statement of Relationship to Similar Work

Here's what we have so far. This is sufficient to fulfill our requirement for a standards relationship statement, though comments are still welcome.

"SARIF represents a different strategy for common representation of the results of static analysis. The Object Management Group's Tool Output Integration Format (TOIF) is an existing standard in this space. Its strategy involves creating adapters from various tools to the reporting format, and as such, it is focused on integrating the diverse input formats into the lowest common denominator representation without having to modify the original tools.

"By contrast, SARIF aims to support the full capabilities of advanced tools, which generally requires modifying the tools to produce SARIF output natively."


P.S. Thanks to Nick Mansourov for the insight about TOIF being designed to produce the lowest common denominator output for compatibility's sake, as shown in this submission of his to the SARIF TC.
