Here is a simple matrix to sum up which technical libraries could be used to cover a new language with Sonar. For all languages, the following features are natively provided by Sonar without a big effort :
- Duplications detection
- Commented-out code detection
- '//NOSONAR' tag detection
- Calculation of basic metrics : 'lines of code', 'physical lines', 'blank lines' and 'comment lines'.
