This page documents how to configure Sonar SonarQubeTM in Eclipse for versions 3.2+.

Go to Window > Preferences > Sonar > Servers.

Sonar SonarQubeTM in Eclipse is pre-configured to access a local Sonar SonarQubeTM server listening on http://localhost:9000/. You can edit this server, delete it or add a new one.
