Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1158) Remove whitespace at end of lines in java files (a checkstyle rule)
Date Fri, 06 Sep 2013 03:09:52 GMT


David Medinets commented on ACCUMULO-1158:

Using a Laissez-faire approach to code formatting and style guidelines, to me, means that
it will never happen. We have the ability to introduce guidelines gradually so implementing
each guideline corresponds to a single commit. This provides a nice way to gradually conform
the code base and move towards getting real value from static code analysis.

> Maven has a checkstyle:checkstyle goal which, oddly enough, runs the checkstyle (
tool that checks coding style. There are many rules available. When all rules are turned on,
there are over 80,000 messages. Changing the code base, all at once, to mitigate that many
messages is not feasible.
> In order to get the process moving, I suggest only the 'no whitespace at end of lines'
be turned on.
