Running a code review

You can run a code review on your Java™ source code with an analysis configuration that uses the Code Review for Java domain, it's rule categories, and rules. In the analysis configuration, you can also determine the scope of an analysis, the source code that you want to analyze.

To run a code review analysis, you must create an new analysis configuration, or work with an existing one.
To run a code review:
  1. Click Run > Analysis.
  2. In the Analysis window, in the Configurations pane, click an analysis configuration.
  3. Click Analyze.
While the analysis runs, the Analysis Results view opens and, if your source code does not conform to the rules in the analysis configuration, the view populates with results. The results are listed in chronological order and are grouped into the same categories that you specified in the analysis configuration.
