Software quality is about a lot more than slinging good code. As a developer you use numerous tools, techniques, frameworks, and processes as you write, organize, build, test, refactor, and continuously improve your applications. Sonar, a free and open source quality platform, makes it radically easier to track, manage, and enhance the overall quality of your code. It leverages respected tools like Findbugs, PMD, and Checkstyle, and implements well-established best practices to provide a full-featured, robust platform for code quality measurement, review, and remediation. Originally Java-only, Sonar now works with many other languages.
Sonar in Action shows developers how to use the Sonar platform to help them continuously improve their source code. The book presents Sonar's core Seven Axes of Quality: design /architecture, duplications, comments, unit tests, complexity, potential bugs, coding rules. You'll find simple, easy to follow discussion and examples as you learn to integrate Sonar into your development process. Once you've used Sonar to identify problems in your code, you'll learn how to leverage Sonar's review functionality and IDE integration to make fixing those issues a smooth and transparent process. Sonar boasts an active community with many high-quality contributed plug-ins. If you're up for it, you'll learn how to extend Sonar by writing your own plug-ins.
- Learn the concepts of "Continuous Inspection"
- Integrate Sonar with Ant, Maven, and Jenkins
- Gain specific techniques for measuring and improving quality
- See how to use Sonar with teams large and small
- Get meaningful metrics on your software quality
This book presents Java-based examples. Techniques will work with software created using other languages.
About the Authors

Ann Campbell has 15 years of experience in Perl, C, C++, Java, and Web technologies on variously sized and organized teams, and has spent far too much time doing code quality the hard way without Sonar.
