July 2010 - Maintaining High Quality Code with Sonar


  • Is your app so brittle that if you stare at it for too long that it may break causing an all weekend outage?

  • Does your app contain smelly dead code?

  • Are your code review sessions a waste of your time?

  • When you write apps do you just throw code together and hope for the best?

  • Are you looking to convince your lead/architect to do things right the first time around?


If you answer YES to all of the questions above then you may have a code quality issue.  In this month's Tampa Java User Group meeting, we are going to look at Sonar, an open source code inspection tool.  Sonar packs a hefty dose of functionalities including design rules, metrics, test coverage, and an additional 40+ plugins to help you keep your code in top shape.  In this month's meeting, Speaker RJ Salicco will show you how to quickly download and throw Sonar at your code to get high quality reviews of your code base.

With Sonar you can perform code reviews, find possible bugs, check coding rules, review unit tests, determine code complexity and confirm your design decisions with a few downloads and a configuration file. In this presentation, I will discuss the importance of code reviews, unit tests/code coverage and how we can be better developers with Sonar. More information can be found at Sonar's website, http://www.sonarsource.org.
