Subject [jira] [Created] (MCHECKSTYLE-321) Be able to check root files
Date Tue, 07 Jun 2016 17:22:20 GMT
Vincent Zurczak created MCHECKSTYLE-321:

             Summary: Be able to check root files
                 Key: MCHECKSTYLE-321
             Project: Maven Checkstyle Plugin
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: checkstyle:check
    Affects Versions: 2.17
            Reporter: Vincent Zurczak
            Priority: Trivial

Today, the Maven Checkstyle plug-in allows to verify files within the Maven directories: sources,
test sources, resources and test resources.

In addition to this, I would personnaly like to verify my *pom.xml* file.
I have tried many things but I did not succeed in validating my POM files with Checkstyle.
And looking at the code, I think I saw why.

The reason for such a verification is that this file also contains license headers that I
would like to keep verified. And I am pretty sure there would be other rules I would like
to check (such as indentation, etc).

If we consider other project kinds, such as Eclipse plug-ins, one may want to verify *plugin.xml*
and *feature.xml* files. So, it would be nice to be able to specify *otherIncludes* in the
plug-in's configuration. This new parameter would contain a list of files to verify, when
they exist.

If the idea is accepted, I am ready to contribute a patch for this feature.
