Eclipse is the perfect environment for using Lint4j. Problems can be reported as soon as the source is saved, and the Eclipse problem marker system allows for easy navigation to the offending line in the source file. Lint4j handles Java 1.0 to 6 source code. Packages and files can be excluded from the analysis, which is useful for generated code such as parsers, JAXB and web services bindings. The warnings can be individually enabled and disabled for each project, allowing the developer to focus on the audits that matter for the project.
The plugin overview is available at the following link.
The Plugin is installed using the Eclipse Plugin Manager. Create an update site with the URL http://www.jutils.com/eclipse-update or read the detailed installation instructions.
