FlexPMD 1.2 released

The FlexPMD team is thrilled to announce that after 6 months, version 1.2 has left the building:

We and the community added a bunch of rules related to naming conventions, security, touch screens.
A new sample project has been created if you want to create your own rules.
You can now load a ruleset Maven from an URL.

Another great news: Xavi and I will be giving a session at MAX later this year about Flash based projects and quality management.

Here is the release note:

A new update of FlexPMD 1.1 has been released yesterday evening!

While several bugs have been fixed and around 10 new rules added (see release note here), the main enhancement of this release has been the collaboration with SonarSource in order to develop a Flex plugin for Sonar

Load pmd results directly in the violations viewer

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[URL of the report]/pmd.xml, the report will be loaded straight ahead.
