h1. Description


(on) This plug-in is supported by the [Static Analysis Collector plug-in|HUDSON:Analysis Collector Plugin] that collects different analysis results and shows the results in aggregated trend graphs. Additionally, health reporting and build stability is also based on the aggregated results.

The FindBugs plug-in scans for findbugs.xml files in the build workspace and reports the number of warnings found. This plug-in is part of the suite of static code analysis plug-ins that are documented on a [separate WIKI page|Static Code Analysis Plug-ins].

The following features are provided by this plug-in:
* Configuration of the files to scan after a build.
* [Build summary|Static Code Analysis Plug-ins#summary] showing the new and fixed warnings of a build
* [Several trend reports|Static Code Analysis Plug-ins#trend] showing the number of warnings per build
* [Overview|Static Code Analysis Plug-ins#overview] of the found warnings per module, package, category, or type
** Parsing of Maven pom.xml or Ant build.xml configuration files to obtain the module or project name
** Parsing of Java or C# files to obtain the package or name space name

* [Remote API|Static Code Analysis Plug-ins#remote-api] to export the build quality and found warnings
* Localization available for: DE, JA (Please help to [localize findbugs|Internationalization] for your locale\!)
