Note
To use Sonar in Eclipse on a project, it is required that the project has been first analyzed in a standard way by Sonar.

...

To take full advantage of SonarQube in Eclipse, it is recommended that your project be analyzed on a regular basis by SonarQube. Regular analysis allows the Eclipse plugin to distinguish between existing issues and any new ones you introduced.
