PMD 5.2.1 / 5.2.2 Snapshot

A free and open source Java source code analyzer that will find potential coding problems such as possible bugs, dead codes and duplicate codes
PMD is an application that was developed as a Java source code analyzer that will help you find unused variables, unnecessary object creation, empty catch blocks, and so forth.

Furthermore, PMD was created to scan 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 - unnecessary if statements, for loops that could be while loops
· Duplicate code - copied/pasted code means copied/pasted bugs
