Subject [jira] [Created] (BEAM-1278) Use checkstyle on everything
Date Wed, 18 Jan 2017 00:07:27 GMT
Benson Margulies created BEAM-1278:

             Summary: Use checkstyle on everything
                 Key: BEAM-1278
             Project: Beam
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: build-system
            Reporter: Benson Margulies
            Assignee: Davor Bonaci

It is desirable to run checkstyle on everything, including poms.

The problem is that the checkstyle rules come from the classpath, and that you can't have
a dependency at the top level on a module of the project.

There are some alternatives:

* As of Maven 3.x, the entire checkstyle rule set can be inlined in the pom. A cure worse
than the disease? You decide.
* What other projects *(e.g. CXF) do is separately release an artifact with checkstyle and
PMD rules. You can do that with a new github repo, or using the necessary Maven magic to have
a subdirectory which is _not_ a module and contains a releasable pom. (It's all in how you
configure the Maven release plugin).
* You can just arrange for the rules to be at a URL. A URL, for example, to a specific version
of a specific file on github?
