Sonar – a platform to manage code quality

Sonar is the most polished tool in the code quality space, and literally includes PMD, FindBugs and Checkstyle all in a single package, plus some excellent support for tools in the Java ecosystem. You can find plugins readily available for all sorts of useful tools: Checkstyle, Clover, Cobertura, Emma, FindBugs, JaCoCo, PMD. Sonar is used as more of an orchestration engine, letting you call on all of the previous tools and aggregating their results. It is very convenient to use, especially if you’re already using Maven, and certainly helps you “get your technical debt” under control. In a large, enterprise environment, Sonar and some combination of the previous tools is essential.
