Formats your code using google-java-format which follows Google's code styleguide.

The format cannot be configured by design.

If you want your IDE to stick to the same format, check out the available configuration files

Usage

Standard pom.xml

To have your sources automatically formatted on each build, add to your pom.xml:

    <build>
        <plugins>
            <plugin>
                <groupId>com.coveo</groupId>
                <artifactId>fmt-maven-plugin</artifactId>
                <version>2.6.0</version>
                <executions>
                    <execution>
                        <goals>
                            <goal>format</goal>
                        </goals>
                    </execution>
                </executions>
            </plugin>
        </plugins>
    </build>

If you prefer, you can only check formatting at build time using the check goal:

    <build>
        <plugins>
            <plugin>
                <groupId>com.coveo</groupId>
                <artifactId>fmt-maven-plugin</artifactId>
                <version>2.6.0</version>
                <executions>
                    <execution>
                        <goals>
                            <goal>check</goal>
                        </goals>
                    </execution>
                </executions>
            </plugin>
        </plugins>
    </build>

Options

sourceDirectory represents the directory where your Java sources that need to be formatted are contained. It defaults to ${project.build.sourceDirectory}

testSourceDirectory represents the directory where your test's Java sources that need to be formatted are contained. It defaults to ${project.build.testSourceDirectory}

additionalSourceDirectories represents a list of additional directories that contains Java sources that need to be formatted. It defaults to an empty list.

verbose is whether the plugin should print a line for every file that is being formatted. It defaults to false.

filesNamePattern represents the pattern that filters files to format. The defaults value is set to .*\.java.

skip is whether the plugin should skip the operation.

skipSortingImports is whether the plugin should skip sorting imports.

style sets the formatter style to be google or aosp. By default this is 'google'. Projects using Android conventions may prefer aosp.

<build>

        <plugin>
            <groupId>com.coveo</groupId>
            <artifactId>fmt-maven-plugin</artifactId>
            <version>2.6.0</version>

                <testSourceDirectory>some/test/directory</testSourceDirectory>
                <verbose>true</verbose>
                <filesNamePattern>.*\.java</filesNamePattern>
                <additionalSourceDirectories>
                    <param>some/dir</param>
                    <param>some/other/dir</param>
                </additionalSourceDirectories>
                <skip>false</skip>
                <skipSortingImports>false</skipSortingImports>
                <style>google</style>
            </configuration>
            <executions>
