Can anyone please let me know on how to write a XML checkstyle configuration for a project that I have in eclipse? I mean how to write a customized one according to some specific coding rules that we follow? Can anyone please share some idea on this?

Are you asking for the configuration file syntax? If so, see .

Or are you asking how to write new rules to check? If so, what specific rule are you attempting to write?

I want to know how I can write new customized rules? For example, I want a rule that checks for an if else condition and warns me that I should always prefer ternary operators. Any good resource from Checkstyle that would help me acheive this? Help appreciated.
I agree. Here's the link:
