compatible with Eclipse 3.4, but works best on Eclipse 3.5.1
To install this plugin in the Eclipse IDE:
- Select Help -> Install New Software. This should display the "Install" dialog.
- Paste the Update Site URL into the field named "Work with:" and press Enter. Pressing Enter should cause Eclipse to update list of available plugins and components.
- Choose the component listed under Sonar: "Sonar Integration for Eclipse (Required)".
- If you use m2eclipse, then select component "Sonar Integration for M2Eclipse (Optional)" too.
- Click Next. Eclipse will then check to see if there are any issues which would prevent a successful installation.
- Click Finish to begin the installation process. Eclipse will then download and install the necessary components.
- Once the installation process is finished, Eclipse will ask you if you want to restart the IDE. It's strongly recommended that you restart IDE.
This video demonstrates the process of installation.

Integration with m2eclipse
Open any Mavenized project and some parameters (groupId, artifactId) will be taken from pom.xml.
Option "Support multiple Maven modules mapped to a single Eclipse workspace project" doesn't supported.
Auto configure project without m2eclipse
Open any Java-file and see violations from Sonar as markers in source code.
Source code from Sonar server may not match source code from your working copy, so we are using some heuristic algorithm to determine line with violation.
