Effective Groovy with CodeNarc 0.12

The new release of everyone’s favorite static anaylsis engine for Groovy is here. Time to download CodeNarc 0.12 while it’s hot. And in case this is your first time, CodeNarc analyzes your Groovy code and looks for potential problems and errors, creating a nice report or flagging the problem in your IDE. It’s like FindBugs, Lint, or PMD, but for Groovy.

So what’s new in 0.12? Performance improvements, 35 new analysis rules, and a new logo. It’s supposed to be an armadillo, but no one can tell. We’re calling it the CodeNarc Grue, as in “You are in a maze of twisty little groovy scripts, all alike.” Anyway, you can read the full rundown over on the Canoo blog. My blog post describes the rules and reasons why you might want to use them.
