Extend java-find-secbugs module to include package and class name in error code #108

commented May 1, 2019


At the moment, java-find-secbugs only allows users to exclude findings based on the the type of bug-pattern. Since the same finding can be a false positive in one part of the code (esp. since findsecbugs also includes library code) but a real problem in another, this PR adds the package
and classname to the error code.

Fixes #107

Type of change

  • New feature (non-breaking change which adds functionality)


  • Java
  • Kotlin

How Has This Been Tested?

  • Rebuild the Hawkeye Container to get all the tools

    $ docker build -t hawkeye-new .
  • Get a Spring Boot project where findsecbugs detects problems in the library

    $ curl \
             -d type=gradle-project \
             -d baseDir=spring-boot-java-gradle \
             -d language=java | tar -xzvf -
    $ cd spring-boot-java-gradle
    $ ./gradlew build
  • Run Hawkeye against the project. You should see some findings from find-secbugs about spring boot internals and see the extended code

    $ docker run --rm -v $PWD:/target hawkeye-new scan --show-code -m java-find-secbugs
  • Run Hawkeye again, this time excluding org.springframework. Hawkeye should come back without findings

    $ docker run --rm -v $PWD:/target hawkeye-new scan --show-code -m java-find-secbugs  --exclude '.*-org\.springframework.*'
