We should use SpotBugs to find issues with OSATE code, and if those issues are severe enough, block pull requests that introduce them.


  • Install / configure SpotBugs
  • Add installation to Oomph
  • Add configuration to Oomph
  • Announce SpotBugs usage / enforcement timeline on OSATE discussion list
  • Add SpotBugs to Maven build
  • Begin rejecting buggy pull requests

  • Running Spotbugs on the build server adds about 20min to the build.
  • Goal spotbugs:spotbugs is needed for build without failing, bind to verify phase
  • Security plugin added via pom configuration, manually in dev environment
  • Most warnings are false positives
  • Focus on >= medium confidence, >= troubling (>=14)
  • Run security only?

Is the restriction to security bugs only for performance reasons? If so, I'd be fine with that for the pull request builder, but I think we may want to run the full set for the nightly build.
