If you want to see a live example of the capabilities of the Android plugin, you can have a look at the analysis of the <TODO> project on Nemo.

Description / Features

This plugin enhances the Java Ecosystem to analyze Android projects within SonarQube:

  • Adds a new set of rules based on Android lint
  • On top of Java files, Android Manifest and resources (such as layouts or pictures) are analyzed

It is compatible with the SonarQube Eclipse plugin to track issues while coding. It is also compatible with the Issues Report plugin to run pre-commit local analysis.


The Android SDK must be installed on the machine(s) running the SonarQube analyses.

Note that you have to install the different Patforms/API whose your projects are built with.


  1. Install the plugin through the Update Center or download it into the SONARQUBE_HOME/extensions/plugins directory
  2. Restart the SonarQube server


The SonarQube Runner, Maven or Ant can be used to run analysis on Android projects.

Sample projects are available on GitHub that can be browsed or downloaded:

  • Simple project analyzed with the SonarQube Runner: /projects/languages/android/android-sonarqube-runner
  • Simple Maven project and code coverage with Emma: /projects/languages/android/android-maven-emma
  • Simple Maven project and code coverage with JaCoCo: /projects/languages/android/android-maven-jacoco
