Top 5 Java Code Quality Projects

  • GitHub repo Checkstyle

    Checkstyle is a development tool to help programmers write Java code that adheres to a coding standard. By default it supports the Google Java Style Guide and Sun Code Conventions, but is highly configurable. It can be invoked with an ANT task and a command line program.

    I’m a little out of date with Java, but I believe Checkstyle is currently popular:

  • GitHub repo SonarQube

    Continuous Inspection

    Project mention: SonarQube in a Homelab? | | 2022-01-09

    I am wondering if it is possible to install SonarQube in my home network. I have 2 Raspberry Pis, one running Raspbian, the other running Ubuntu 20.04. I also have an Intel NUC.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • GitHub repo PMD

    An extensible multilanguage static code analyzer.

    While at it you could also point them to static code analyzers such as error_prone, spotbugs and pmd (use all 3 at once - they complement each other in detecting different issues).

  • GitHub repo Tailor

    Cross-platform static analyzer and linter for Swift. (by sleekbyte)

  • GitHub repo gradle-baseline

    A set of Gradle plugins that configure default code quality tools for developers.

    Project mention: How to make IntelliJ tell you about updated standard libs with the same purpose? | | 2021-01-19

    Check out Google’s open source Error Prone. It hooks into compilation with additional bug patterns, including warnings for use of java.util.Date and obsolete JDK APIs. You can also write your own checks as well as automate refactorings, for example gradle-baseline adds many more bug patterns and cleanups.
