FindBugs

Came across this really neat tool that can actually find bugs in your code. It uses ‘static analysis’ to find instances of bug patterns – code instances that are likely to be errors. I was pretty skeptical until I ran it on some code and was impressed by the results. It found loads of possible problems. I’ll definitely be using it again.

Check it out at http://findbugs.sourceforge.net/

Update: Found recommendations for another tool called JLint, which is supposed to be particularly good for spotting potential deadlocks so perhaps worth using when testing threaded code.
