Static Code Analysis Tool

The Static Code Analysis Tools is a Maven plugin that executes the Maven plugins for FindBugs, Checkstyle and PMD and generates a merged .html report. It is specifically designed for Eclipse SmartHome and openHAB code as it is tailored to respect their coding guidelines.

This project contains:

  • properties files for the PMD, Checkstyle and FindBugs Maven plugins configuration in the src/main/resources/configuration folder;
  • rule sets for the plugins in the src/main/resources/rulesets folder;
  • custom rules for PMD, CheckStyle and FindBugs and unit tests for the rules;
  • tool that merges the reports from the individual plugins in a summary report.
