Hi All,

I would like to try get myself and all my team members use a good code audit plugin so that the time we spend on code reviews can be more focused on catching real bugs rather than class name should start with caps....stuff

I would like to hear about tools and the ranchers experiences before suggesting any tool to my peers.

Basically there are 2 main requirements

1. Free
2. Configurable to meet our internal coding standards

We use WSAD 5.0 and 5.1 versions

Request you to share your experiences

Thanks in advance

Rajagopal,
In WSAD, you can set a lot of coding standard type things to flag as warnings or errors. Take a look in the preferences for a full list.

Thanks for the replies,

I will take another look at WSAD preferences.

We do have some guidelines for setting up those preferences but still many bugs fall through them. But I guess there is only so much a tool can do.

Will look into PMD right away.

Request others to share experiences with other plugins that may have added value over existing WSAD capabilities.

Regards,
Rajagopal

We've used JTest as a WSAD plugin. It's very good, but commercial and very expensive.

PMD also has an Ant task. You can look to see if any others have Ant tasks and integrate through Ant if there is no Eclipse plugin.
