I have what I hope is a simple question, but I have been unable to find any way to do it. I am using Sonar and have configured my rules for FindBugs within it. Because the SonarEclipse plugin does not perform real-time analysis, I have installed FindBugs into Eclipse. However, I do not see any way to have FindBugs use the “permalink” provided by Sonar so that the FindBugs plugin can use the exact same rules. Am I missing something or is it not currently supported? If not, could you please consider this a huge request to add this feature? The Eclipse plugin for Checkstyle does support this feature and it is incredibly helpful and convenient.
See this out of date feature request: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2778405&group_id=96405&atid=614696
which is currently "out of date".
Feel free to provide a patch.
As said before, I'm willing to review & integrate it.
