The Jenkins Next Generation Warnings plugin collects compiler warnings or issues reported by static analysis tools and visualizes the results. It has built-in support for more than hundred report formats. Among the problems it can detect:
The Jenkins Next Generation Warnings plug-in replaces the whole Jenkins Static Analysis Suite. I.e. it makes the following Jenkins plugins obsolete: Android Lint, CheckStyle, Dry, FindBugs, PMD, Warnings, Static Analysis Utilities, Static Analysis Collector.
The plugin publishes a report of the issues found in your build, so you can navigate to a summary report from the main build page. From there you can also dive into the details:
If you are using Git as source code management system then the warnings plugin will optionally mine the repository in the style of Code as a Crime Scene (Adam Tornhill, November 2013) to determine statistics of the affected files (i.e. the files with issues):
Additionally, the plugin shows the last person who modified the code that contains an issue (and the last commit ID). In order to use this functionality you need to install the optional Git Forensics Plugin.
If your tool is not yet supported by the warnings plugin you can either define a new Groovy based parser in the user interface or provide a parser within a new small plug-in. If the parser is useful for other teams as well please share it and provide pull requests for the Warnings Next Generation Plug-in and the Analysis Parsers Library.
