This session will be really fun. We will make a dive into findbugs, a very useful tool every java programmer and eclipse developer should use to test Java code against potential bugs, defects and antipatterns.
We will take some of Joshua Bloch's "Effective Java" Rules and see how/if they can be implemented in a tool like findbugs.
Additionaly we will show how to implement a new custom bug detector to find specific defects we are interested in and the results of applying findbugs to larger codebases (like the JDK, eclipse)
I will also show how to implement possible quick fix actions (e.g. to generate a usefull equals() method in Java)
A comparison with other static analysis tools will conlude this session.
