Configuring for FindBugs analysis

Configuring Visual Lint for use with FindBugs is quite straightforward.


Step 1: Run the Configuration Wizard

The Configuration Wizard can be invoked from the Configuration Wizard command on the Visual Lint toolbar. When run, it will guide you through the process of configuring Visual Lint for use with supported analysis tools:



Step 2: Select the analysis tool you wish to configure

The Analysis Tools page allows you to select which analysis tool to configure:



Step 3: Select your FindBugs installation folder

The Select Analysis Tool Installation Folder page will guide you through downloading FindBugs (if required) and locate the FindBugs installation folder:



Step 4: Save the changes

Once your FindBugs installation has been located, proceeding through the Completion page will save the changes, whereupon FindBugs will become available for analysis purposes.



It should be noted that the Configuration Wizard is not the only way to configure Visual Lint, as it is also possible to configure it manually via the Visual Lint Options command on the toolbar or (where available) the "Tools" menu.
