The Java Ecosystem is a set of Sonar plugins used to monitor the quality of Java projects within Sonar.
The Java Ecosystem is a set of plugins:
- Mandatory plugins:
Java [sonar-java-plugin]: to parse Java code source, compute metrics, etc.
- Squid [sonar-squid-java-plugin]: to compute additional metrics, check code against rules provided by the Sonar engine
- Optional plugins adding features from external tools:
Checkstyle [sonar-checkstyle-plugin]: to check code against rules provided by Checkstyle
- FindBugs [sonar-findbugs-plugin]: to check code against rules provided by FindBugs
- PMD [sonar-pmd-plugin]: to check code against rules provided by PMD
- Surefire [sonar-surefire-plugin]: to execute unit tests with Surefire
- Cobertura [sonar-cobertura-plugin]: to get code coverage with Cobertura
- JaCoCo [sonar-jacoco-plugin]: to get code coverage with JaCoCo
Note that by default the Java Ecosystem is provided with Sonar. You can update it from the Update Center (since Sonar 3.5) or download the latest release from this page header.
