FindBugs Session: Notes

by Tim O'Brien

Sitting in the FindBugs session, it's pretty interesting. The last time I interacted with static analysis it was a product from Parasoft (?) and it wasn't that compelling. FindBugs looks interesting, simple, and is integrated with Hudson. Everyone seems to be moving to Hudson, Kohsuke has created a very compelling CI server.

CheckStyle has many of the same checks and has many more style checks as well.

I preiodically execute PMD and FindBugs in our Java projects with custom sets of rules/filters.
I've learned a lot from both tools.

I've been using FindBugs since I saw the JavaOne presentation in...2005 I think (or was it 2004?). I don't use it every day, but I run it every so often and I find it an invaluable tool in improving a code base.
