This page documents version 3.3 of the SonarQube Eclipse plugin. For prior versions, click here.
While browsing the source code, SonarQube in Eclipse highlights issues. But its added value is to be able highlight the new issues that you have introduced while adding/modifying the source code. You can thus check your code prior to pushing it to the SCM to make sure that you haven't introduced any new issues.
Note that you can also run an analysis on a working set. This allows you to trigger several analyses at once on all the projects of the working set.
