Subject [jira] [Resolved] (MPMD-232) Enable typeResolution by default
Date Fri, 31 Mar 2017 11:08:41 GMT


Andreas Dangel resolved MPMD-232.
    Resolution: Fixed

> Enable typeResolution by default
> --------------------------------
>                 Key: MPMD-232
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven PMD Plugin
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: PMD
>            Reporter: Juan Martín Sotuyo Dodero
>            Assignee: Andreas Dangel
>             Fix For: 3.8
> For some time now PMD has supported type resolution, allowing PMD rules to make better
decisions by having knowledge of all classes in both the project, and the classpath.
> However, when using PMD through the Maven plugin, the auxclasspath for type resolution
is not populated by default. There is a property to control this behavior, but it's set to
false by default. See
> I believe there is no reason to have it off by default (actually, I don't think there
is any valid reason to have it off at all!). Type resolution means better and more accurate
analysis results. If there are no rules configured requiring type resolution, the type resolution
analysis is skipped completely, meaning there is no performance impact either.
> I've not checked, but just in case the classpath passed to PMD should include:
> - all dependencies
> - the .class files generated by compiling the project's source code
