    Welcome to the roundup of blog posts and pages that mentioned Sonar last month...

    Using NodeJS/Mocha together with SonarSource/JavaScript plugin
    By Steven Looman, 2 July 2012

    Lately I have been busy with NodeJS; you can see some of my work on GitHub. To keep code quality on par, several tools are available. For example, you can use jshint or jslint to perform static analysis on your JavaScript code. In case of static analysis, code is looked at, but never executed. Another tool is SonarSource. I will not try to explain SonarSource, as they are much better at it themselves. To perform analysis on JavaScript, the JavaScript plugin for SonarSource can be used.

    Process Automation and Continuous Integration in the JISC Enable Project
    By Sam Rowley, 5 July 2012

    Continuing the JISC Enable Project technology retrospective, this post describes the approach we have used to automate parts of the software development process to improve the effectiveness of the development team.

    Simplify Your Java Documentation Strategy
    By Patroklos P. Papapetrou and G. Ann Campbell, 9 July 2012

    Documentation is an afterthought for many development teams. But if it’s properly managed, spending a few minutes now on documentation can save a lot of future work. At its heart, Sonar is about technical debt – the things that were done poorly or left undone – things that will stand in the way of future productivity. Get some ideas for making your Java documentation process a smooth activity.

    Cobol application assessment (2/2)
    By Jean-Pierre FAYOLLE, 7 July 2012

    Today we continue our evaluation of the quality of Cobol code with Sonar. In the previous post, we worked with the metrics measuring code size, complexity, level of documentation and duplication, which allowed us to formulate some initial recommendations to the people responsible for this application.

    Application benchmarking
    By Jean-Pierre FAYOLLE, 13 July 2012

    I thought the previous post on the quality assessment of an application would be the last of our series on the analysis of Cobol code with Sonar. But I discovered this week a new plugin from eXcentia, very useful as a part of an assessment: the Sonar Benchmark Plugin. This plugin allows a comparative evaluation – a benchmark – of an application over the entire code in your Sonar repository.

    Sonar: PHP code quality
    By Random Code, 21 July 2012

    Sonar is a code quality management platform that is very popular with Java users, but this platform also includes plugins that allows integration with other programming languages ​​including C, COBOL, C #, Visual Basic and much more. In this tutorial I explain how to get Sonar working with XAMPP. You will also need to get working with wamp or another package, but I work for several years with XAMPP so hence.
