Hi all,
I am using checkstyle with eclipse and I think it is a really useful tool. However it is displaying a warning that it is "unable to get class information" for all my Execption. Does any one know why this is happening.

Just do a project rebuild all
Checkstyle has got it's knickers a twist with regards to the classpath, I've found that it can't find a class description for a class in the same package, a project-rebuild all almost always sorts it out.

I have no java certifications. This makes me a bad programmer. Ignore my post.

Hi Lewin.
Thanks for the advice. Unfortunately that has not sorted it.
I agree. Here's the link:
