Tip
titleLive example

If you want to see a live example of the capabilities of the Java Ecosystem, you can have a look at Sonar SonarQube on SonarSonarQube.

Description / Features

The ecosystem enables analysis of Java Ecosystem is a set of plugins used to monitor the quality of Java projects within Sonar.

Installation

The SonarQube.

On top of the coding rules provided by the SonarQube engine, you can activate rules from CheckstyleFindBugsPMDClirr, and fb-contrib. However, we highly recommend that you limit your Quality Profiles to from the SonarQube engine because we believe they are faster, more accurate (fewer false positives and false negatives), and more usable (they have better descriptions, etc). Read this blog post for more details.

Installation

By default the Java Ecosystem is provided with Sonar.As any other plugins, you can update it through the SonarQube. You can update it from the Update Center or download new version into the SONAR_HOME/extensions/plugins directory. Then restart the Sonar serverthe latest release from this page header. Don't forget to check the upgrade notes.

SonarQube Analysis

To run an analysis of your JavaScript Java project, use the Sonar Runner.A sample project is you can use the following analyzers:

Sample projects for each analyzer are available on GitHub that can be browsed or downloaded: /projects/languages/java

Notes:

  • The source directory must be set to the directory containing the top parent package. For example, if your directory structure is src/

...

Run a Sonar Analysis with the other Analyzers

Maven and Ant can also be used to launch analysis on Java projects.

Extending Coding Rules using XPath

New coding rules can be added using XPath. See the related documentation.

To navigate the AST, download the SSLR Java Toolkit.

  • The source directory tree must match the package declaration. For example, the following class:

must be located in the following directory: [mySourceDirectory]/com/mycompany/mypackage/MyClass.java. Otherwise you would get an error like below while running your analysis:

Tests and Code Coverage

The default code coverage engine for unit tests can be set in Settings > General Settings > Java > Code coverage plugin property.

By default the code coverage engine is JaCoCo, but Cobertura or Clover can also be used.

To deal with unit tests and code coverage, see Code Coverage by Unit Tests for Java Project tutorial.

To deal with integration tests and code coverage, see Code Coverage by Integration Tests for Java Project tutorial.

Upgrade Notes

Version 2.0

This version no longer includes the Checkstyle and PMD plugins. Therefore, you should install those two plugins if you're still using some of their rules.

All the valuable rules from PMD and Checkstyle were rewritten based on our own SSLR technology. These rules are now available in the SonarQube repository. Deprecated rules from PMD and Checkstyle are flagged as so and their replacement is stated in the rule description:

Image Added

See http://www.sonarqube.org/already-158-checkstyle-and-pmd-rules-deprecated-by-sonarqube-java-rules/ for more details.

Version 1.5

  • Property sonar.surefire.reportsPath has been removed and replaced by sonar.junit.reportsPath.
