Static analysis is the analysis of software without executing that code. For Java, one of the better known static analysis tools is FindBugs.
The FindBugs team is planning a community review of warnings in several open source projects of varying sizes. The goals of the review are to bring problems to the attention of developers and compare the perspectives of independent reviewers on the severity of the warnings. Openfire has been included in this endeavor.
We invite you to take part. Using a Java Webstart instance of FindBugs, you will be able to review warnings and add comments where appropriate. If you’re interested, please navigate to the FindBugs Community Review page and start reviewing!
