Description / Features

The Taglist Maven Plugin generates a report on various tags found in the code, like @todo or //TODO tags. This Sonar plugin is able to transparently configure and launch the Taglist Maven plugin in order to collect all occurrences of those tags  to feed the Sonar DB.

Usage & Installation

  • Stop Sonar Web server
  • Place the jar into the /extensions/plugins directory
  • Restart Sonar Web server
  • Define the tags you want to hunt by activating the associated rules in your quality profile :

  • Launch a new analysis and you'll get such kind of reports :


  • If you want to add new tags to the default ones, you need to create a file "" in the /extensions/plugins directory. The file must be fed with the list of desired tags and their associated ISO category. Restart the Sonar web server and your tags should appear in the Quality Profile management console. Example of file :



    Sonar doesn't reuse any configuration possibly made manually in the pom.xml file on the Taglist Maven plugin.
