It is helpful to read your written work aloud.
Contributing Overview OK, so you have finally decided to write your own Check.
Welcome aboard, this is really a easy thing to do. Very basic Java knowledge is required to write a Check, it is good practice for even for student.
There are actually two kinds of Checks, so before you can start, you have to find out which kind of Check you want to implement. The functionality of Checkstyle is implemented in modules that can be plugged into Checkstyle.
Modules can be containers for other modules, i. The top level modules that are known directly to the Checkstyle kernel which is also a module and forms the root of the tree implement the FileSetCheck interface.
These are pretty simple to grasp: Checkstyle provides a few FileSetCheck implementations by default and one of them happens to be the TreeWalker.
A TreeWalker supports submodules that are derived from the AbstractCheck class.
The TreeWalker operates by separately transforming each of the Java input files into an abstract syntax tree and then handing the result over to each of the Check submodules which in turn have a look at a certain aspect of the tree. Writing Checks Most of the functionality of Checkstyle is implemented as Checks.
If you know how to write your own Checks, you can extend Checkstyle according to your needs without having to wait for the Checkstyle development team. You are about to become a Checkstyle Expert. Suppose you have a convention that the number of methods in a class should not exceed a certain limit, say This rule makes sense, a class should only do one thing and do it well.
With a zillion methods chances are that the class does more than one thing. The only problem you have is that your convention is not checked by Checkstyle, so you'll have to write your own Check and plug it into the Checkstyle framework. This chapter is organized as a tour that takes you through the process step by step and explains both the theoretical foundations and the Checkstyle API along the way.
Java Grammar Every Java Program is structured into files, and each of these files has a certain structure. For example, if there is a package statement then it is the first line of the file that is not comment or whitespace.
After the package statement comes a list of import statements, which is followed by a class or interface definition, and so on. If you have ever read an introductory level Java book you probably knew all of the above.
And if you have studied computer science, you probably also know that the rules that specify the Java language can be formally specified using a grammar statement is simplified for didactic purposes.
There are tools which read a grammar definition and produce a parser for the language that is specified in the grammar. In other words, the output of the tool is a program that can transform a stream of characters a Java file into a tree representation that reflects the structure of the file.
Checkstyle uses the parser generator ANTLR but that is an implementation detail you do not need to worry about when writing Checks, as well tested parser will parse Java file for you.Examples of Writing CONTRAST and ESTIMATE Statements Introduction EXAMPLE 1: A Two-Factor Model with Interaction Computing the Cell Means Using the ESTIMATE Statement.
