    Hello everyone,

    I'm trying to find out what source code file I'm analyzing (to read config
    files accordingly), but unfortunately, RuleContext.getSourceCodeFile() always
    returns null (I'm overriding AbstractJavaRule.start(RuleContext)).

    The PMD version I am currently using is 4.2.x. Do you have any insight on

    That API is not called per AST, it is meant to be called across ASTs. For a
    Java rule, visit 'ASTCompilationUnit' and the RuleContext will have source
    code file set.

    Thank you! I didn't realize that the data object passed to visit methods is
    the RuleContext.
