Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-1198) When checkstyle is activated for Hive in Eclipse environment, it shows all checkstyle problems as errors.
Date Thu, 27 May 2010 17:30:37 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-1198?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12872296#action_12872296

Arvind Prabhakar commented on HIVE-1198:

Ning - I have attached an updated patch - (hive-1198-2.patch). The key difference in this
patch is that it does not activate checkstyle by default. When you import the hive project
and you wish to activate checkstyle, you will have to right click on the project  and select
Checkstyle > Activate Checkstyle from the context menu.

So in case checkstyle is causing problems on your workbench, you can choose to not activate
it. The steps to activate checkstyle plugin in eclipse are also documented in the README.txt
file, right below the section on setting up Eclipse. 

Can you give this patch a try and see if it resolves the problem you were facing?

> As of now, checkstyle plugin reports all problems as errors. This causes an overwhelming
number of errors to show up (3000+) which masks real errors that might be there. Since all
the checkstyle violations are not going to be fixed in one shot, it is desirable to lower
the severity of checkstyle violations to warnings so that the plugin can be kept enabled.
This will encourage developers to spot checkstyle violations in the files they touch and potentially
fix them as they go along, along with pointing out violations as they code.
