Subject [ANN] Maven PMD Plugin 1.8 for Maven 1.x released
Date Sun, 26 Mar 2006 23:25:45 GMT
We are pleased to announce the Maven PMD Plugin 1.8 release!

The Maven PMD plugin is a plugin that wraps the PMD framework 
( PMD is a source checking framework that works by 
scanning Java source code and looks for potential problems like: unused local 
variables, empty catch blocks, unused parameters, empty 'if' statements, etc. 


Changes in this version include:

  New Features:

o New property "maven.pmd.targetjdk" to define the target JDK. Fixes 
  MPPMD-19. Thanks to Wim Deblauwe. 
o Add a link on each error to explain it. 
o New properties "maven.pmd.failonerror" and "maven.pmd.failonruleviolation" 
  to fail the build if any errors or problems are found. Fixes MPPMD-21. 
o New property "maven.pmd.console" to display pmd errors to the console. 
  Fixes MPPMD-13. 

  Fixed bugs:

o Do not generate links to JXR files if they are not created. 
o Fix NullPointerException if or are not defined. 


o Use properties maven.jxr.destdir and maven.jxr.destdir.test to generate 
  links from the PMD report to jxr files. 
o Upgrade to pmd-3.5.
