This document describes the Eclipse plug-in Checkclipse .

Checkclipse is a plug-in which includes the Checkstyle coding standard checker into the Eclipse workbench. It is just a thin framework around Checkstyle. The really difficult part (the checking of the java files) is done by Checkstyle, the plug-in just provides the infrastructure to do the configuration of Checkstyle and to mark the problems found by it.

From the Checkstyle home page: Checkstyle is a development tool to help programmers write Java code that adheres to a coding standard. By default it supports the Sun Code Conventions, but is highly configurable. It can be invoked with an ANT task and a command line program.
