I'm using Eclipse Ganymede for development and PMD 3.2.6 as my static code analyzer.PMD works fine for java but when I point at JSP pages in Eclipse and right click there is simply no pmd option to check jsp code.Can anyone please suggest a workaround?It is a project requirement.I will be obliged.
Thank you.

Warm Regards

Welcome to CodeRanch!

One workaround is to use the command line or Ant. Note that PMD can only handle JSPs if they are well formed.
