Software Product Description


PMD is a source code analyzer. It finds common programming flaws like unused variables, empty catch blocks, unnecessary object creation, and so forth. It supports Java, JavaScript, XML, XSL.

Available Plugins include:

  • Maven PMD.
  • Eclipse.
  • NetBeans.
  • JBuilder.
  • JDeveloper.
  • IntelliJ IDEA.

PMD additionally includes CPD, the copy-paste-detector. CPD finds duplicated code in Java, C, C++, C#, PHP, Ruby, Fortran, JavaScript, PLSQL, Apache Velocity, Scala, Objective C, Matlab, Python, Go.

New and noteworthy
Improved Golang CPD Support
Thanks to the work of ITBA students Matías Fraga, Tomi De Lucca and Lucas Soncini, Golang is now backed by a proper Antlr Grammar. This means CPD is now better at detecting duplicates, as comments are recognized as such and ignored.

New Rules
The new PLSQL rule CodeFormat (plsql-codestyle) verifies that PLSQL code is properly formatted. It checks e.g. for correct indentation in select statements and verifies that each parameter is defined on a separate line.

Fixed Issues
Exclude specific files from command line.
Could not find or load main class when using symlinked
LanguageRegistry uses default class loader when invoking ServiceLocator.
How to configure "-cache <path>"
Broken link to adding new cpd language documentation.
ClassCastException caused by Javadoc.
PMD crashes with java.lang.ClassFormatError: Absent Code attribute in method that is not native or abstract in class file javax/xml/ws/Service
GuardLogStatement: "There is log block not surrounded by if" doesn't sound right.
UnusedImports false positive for static import with package-private method usage.
Update CommentDefaultAccessModifierRule to extend AbstractIgnoredAnnotationRule.
JUnitTestsShouldIncludeAssert false positive.
UnusedImports false positive with static ondemand import with method call.
UnnecessaryFullyQualifiedName doesn't flag same package FQCNs.
UnnecessaryModifier wrong message public->static
Processing error (ClassCastException) if a TYPE_USE annotation is used on a base class in the "extends" clause.
JspTokenManager has a problem about jsp scriptlet.
Provide some explanation for WHY duplicate code is bad, like mutations.

API Changes
PMD has a new CLI option -ignorelist. With that, you can provide a file containing a comma-delimit list of files, that should be excluded during analysis. The ignorelist is applied after the files have been selected via -dir or -filelist, which means, if the file is in both lists, then it will be ignored. Note: there is no corresponding option for the Ant task, since the feature is already available via Ant's FileSet include/exclude filters.
