This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I have some questions related to FindBugs + Eclipse. Could anyone help me?
1. After code-checking process, can we export checking report to a excel file? This report may include a summary (number of occurrences related to a specific kind of errors) and the specific line where an error occur? I have tried to export to XML file but there is no description related to errors in the exported file.
2. Actually, these tools have lists of check items (e.g. Detector Configuration in FindBugs, see the image below) that allows us to select which kind of errors we want check in code-checking process. I would like to know whether we can export this configuration settings and apply to different PC, without manual configuration for checkpoints and reporting?
In the Problems view, which shows the list of errors and warnings that FindBugs and other Eclipse tools have found in your code, you can select all the rows and copy them, and then paste into an Excel sheet.
Unfortunately I don't know how you can export or import the FindBugs settings in Eclipse. The preferences window (Windows / Preferences / Java / FindBugs) doesn't seem to have a way to export or import the FindBugs configuration.
