#419 Generate Coding Standards Documentation


Wouldn't it be fabulous if you could take a
checkstyle.xml, run it through a tool and generate a
text description of the checks being produced as input
to a coding standards document?

    I too would be interested in this feature, even if it merely
    generates a modified version of the API documentation for
    each of the enabled checks, it would still provide a
    reasonable human-readable reference.

    I think this would be pretty easy to implement if the API documentation has a separate page for each check (as opposed to one page per grouping). You could then just create URLs based on what you find in checkstyle.xml.

    that is lamost impossible to do, to generate docuemnt that is readable by human.

    Nobody read code standards, that is utopia.
