Subject [jira] [Created] (MCHECKSTYLE-371) Add logViolationCountToConsole property
Date Tue, 19 Mar 2019 13:14:00 GMT
Stig Rohde Døssing created MCHECKSTYLE-371:

             Summary: Add logViolationCountToConsole property
                 Key: MCHECKSTYLE-371
             Project: Maven Checkstyle Plugin
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: checkstyle:check
    Affects Versions: 3.0.0
            Reporter: Stig Rohde Døssing

The plugin is missing a property to allow users to log the violation count to console.

There are already a couple of places where the violation count may be logged, but it doesn't
happen unconditionally. The DefaultCheckstyleExecutor may log the error count, but only if
there are error-severity violations. The CheckstyleViolationCheckMojo.countViolations method
may log the violation count, but only if there are ignored violations.

It would be nice if a logViolationCountToConsole property were added. Printing the violation
count is convenient in cases where e.g. you have fixed some violations in a project and now
want to reduce maxAllowedViolations. Currently you have to either manually count the violations
from the report, or set maxAllowedViolations to 0 to get the plugin to fail and print the
violation count.
