Doing SCJD with pmd rules

Hello Guys,
I am going to start the SCJD as soon as oracle sort it out with prometric. I was wondering though if using the pmd rules plugin for eclipse was cheating? I do not have to use all the pmd rules but i will use the ones that give me better efficiency.

Has anyone used them before with their project??

Howdy, Martin!

Hum... I don't think so.

Champion, the only thing you can't do is use a tool that generates code for you. But tell me, what for would you use it? What would be the benefit? You may be introducing more complexity than it is really needed, so it may be more advantage not to use it.

Hi Martin,

I used PMD after I submitted my assignment (although I almost had forgotten I used it ), together with some other tools to check the coding style. Here you can read my experienced about it.

Kind regards,

SCJA, SCJP (1.4 | 5.0 | 6.0), SCJD
