PMD Applied

I finally decided to select PMD for static analysis of java code as one more line of defense, but definitely not substitution to real code reviews by seasoned developers. In order to become more familiar with best practices for PMD usage and eventually improve code quality, I just read several reviews and ordered PMD Applied book, written by Tom Copeland, the author of PMD. While waiting for PMD Applied delivery I'm going to take a look at FindBugs. This is one more static analysis tool, but comparing PMD vs FindBugs, the former checks the uncompiled source code, while the latter examines compiled code, class or JAR files
