I’ve just downloaded QStudio for Java Pro, which is being offered with a free year-long license.
QStudio for Java Pro is a comprehensive software health quality assessment and control tool targeted towards the software developer.
Developers can automatically inspect their Java source code and improve their Java programming skills as they write their programs. QStudio for Java Pro provides descriptive Java patterns explaining error prone code constructs and providing solutions for it.
For those of you familiar with tools like Checkstyle or even the built in code checker in Eclipse, it does a similar job, although it does seem more sophisticated. Probably the best feature is the ability to generate a HTML view of your source complete with annotated “Observations” (as QStudio puts it) making code reviews a real breeze. I’m still trying to get it to play nice with Jalopy – however thats more an issue with getting Jalopy to format its code so QStudio doesn’t moan about it.
