I’ve been asked this question several times today:
Is it possible to load pmd results file directly in the violations viewer?
By default, there is a first screen in the violations viewer where you load your results file.
But if you type
http://opensource.adobe.com/svn/opensource/flexpmd/bin/flex-pmd-violations-viewer.html?report=[URL of the report]/pmd.xml, the report will be loaded straight ahead.
