💡 Overview

PMD is a static source code analyzer. It finds common programming flaws like unused variables, empty catch blocks, unnecessary object creation, and so forth. It’s mainly concerned with Java and Apex, but supports six other languages.

PMD features many built-in checks (in PMD lingo, rules), which are documented for each language in our Rule references. We also support an extensive API to write your own rules, which you can do either in Java or as a self-contained XPath query.

PMD is most useful when integrated into your build process. It can then be used as a quality gate, to enforce a coding standard for your codebase. Among other things, PMD can be run: * As a Maven goal * As an Ant task * As a Gradle task * From command-line

CPD, the copy-paste detector, is also distributed with PMD. You can also use it in a variety of ways, which are documented here.

💾 Download

The latest release of PMD can be downloaded from our Github releases page.
