    Pmd Alternatives

    Pmd is described as 'PMD scans Java source code and looks for potential problems like: Possible bugs - empty try/catch/finally/switch statements Dead code - unused local variables, parameters and private methods Suboptimal code - wasteful String/StringBuffer usage Overcomplicated expressions -'. There are three alternatives to Pmd for a variety of platforms, including Linux, Mac, Windows, Java Mobile and Online / Web-based. The best alternative is Codacy. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try FindBugs or Checkstyle.

    2. Checkstyle is a development tool to help programmers write Java code that adheres to a coding standard. It automates the process of checking Java code to spare humans of this boring (but important) task. This makes it ideal for projects that want to enforce a coding standard.
