The Flatten Maven plugin

One of the Apache Maven committers recently wrote about their plans for Maven 5. I consider the following one of the most significant changes: In summary, we need to make a distinction between two POM types: the build POM, stored in the project source control, that uses v5 schema for build time, requiring a new Maven version able to use the new features associated to the new schema,the consumer POM, that is published to Maven Central in the good old v4 schema, so every past or future build t

A SonarQube plugin for Kotlin - Analyzing with ANTLR

Last week, we used ANTLR to generate a library to be able to analyze Kotlin code. It’s time to use the generated API to check for specific patterns.

KotlinParserBaseVisitor is its empty implementation, to ease t

A SonarQube plugin for Kotlin - Paving the way

Since I started my journey into Kotlin, I wanted to use the same libraries and tools I use in Java.

For example, Jenkins works flawlessly, while SonarQube lacks a dedicated plugin.

plugin wordpress goes mobile!

On the contrary, if you browse it with a mobile device (an iPhone for example), it’s kind like a new user experience! In fact, in almost 1 minute, I made this site adapted to mobile browsing. How?
