Hello everyone,

Can anyone share their experiences with SONAR. I am new to code analysis/testing stuff and I havent used anything other than junit. From what I have seen it looks like Sonar just provides a dashboard which contains reports from different tools, some of them which are shipped with Sonar itself and others which you integrate .. Does sonar have any code analysing functionality of its own ? I am not sure if I am understanding it correctly. I tried going through their website, but couldnt figure out what it actually is (maybe because of lack of experience in these things).

Any insights into Sonar would be appreciated.

Sonar is great. Your description is pretty accurate. It is plugin based so there are a lot of custom plugins for Sonar but a lot of stuff comes from other tools already out there like findbugs, pmd, coberature etc etc Out of the box with very little configuration it gives you a pretty comprehensive suite of metrics.
