It is recommended to run project analysis on a regular basis to get the best from the Sonar platform. Continuous Integration servers are the perfect tools to do so.
Install and configure the Sonar Jenkins plugin.
Install and configure the Sonar Hudson plugin.
Apache Continuum 1.2
The difficulty in Continuum is to be able to synchronize an install goal with the sonar goal because it is necessary that an install command is run before the Sonar 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 options: either running install commands regularly (for example every hour), or trigger a complete command such as :
in this case, unit test are going to be run twice: once during install and once during sonar
In case you decide to run install commands regularly, here is the setup you can do for the sonar build:
- Create a build definition with the goal:
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 sonar.
- 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 2 wizard
In CruiseControl, use the | to run the install and the sonar in two different processes.
The command to be launched should look like :
These are the build configuration steps you need to do for the build:
- In general settings, make sure that fail build if at least one test failed is unchecked.
In build runner config, select Maven2, with the goal
Additional maven command line parameters:
- In build triggering select a daily schedule (or what you prefer).
- In Properties and environment variables, add an environment variable called MAVEN_OPTS, and set the value to '-Xmx512m'
