It is recommended to run project analysis analyses on a regular basis to get the best from the Sonar SonarQubeTM platform. Continuous Integration servers are the perfect tools to do so.


Install and configure the Sonar SonarQubeTM Jenkins plugin.


Install and configure the Sonar SonarQubeTM Hudson plugin.

The difficulty in Continuum is to be able to synchronize an install goal with the sonar:sonar goal because it is necessary that an install command goal is run before the Sonar SonarQubeTM collect starts (See Analyzing Source Code for more information).

Since Continuum does not provide mechanism to trigger a build from a build, there are 2 two options: either running install commands goals regularly (for example every hour), or trigger a complete command such as:

Code Block
mvn clean install sonar:sonar -Dmaven.test.failure.ignore=true

in In this case, unit test tests are going to be run twice: once during install and once during sonar:sonar

In case you decide to run install commands regularly, here is the setup you can do for the sonar SonarQubeTM build:

  • Create a build definition with the goal:
Code Block

For multi-module projects, make sure that the --non-recursive build definition argument is NOT set.

  • Once created, run this build definition on the root pom of the projects you want to sonarSonarQubeTM.
  • For multi-module projects, make sure to check For multi modules project, load only root as recursive build when you create the project through the Continuum maven Maven 2 wizard


In CruiseControl, use the | to run the install and the sonar:sonar goals in two different processes.
The command to be launched run should look like:

Code Block
clean install -Dtest=false -DfailIfNoTests=false | sonar:sonar -Psonar_profile


  1. In general settings, make sure that fail build if at least one test failed is unchecked.
  2. In build runner config, select Maven2, with the goal

    clean install sonar:sonar

  3. In build triggering select a daily schedule (or what you prefer).
  4. In Properties and environment variables, add an environment variable called MAVEN_OPTS, and set the value to '-Xmx512m'
