FlexDeploy - PMD Plugin Guide

A plugin to manage PMD static code analysis. This plugin allows a user to run PMD scans on source code which generates reports for common programming flaws, code smells, vulnerabilities, etc. Analyzing source code is a multi-step process when done manually or using PMD CLI. Hence often prone to human error. FlexDeploy's PMD plugin provides a simple and effective way to automate the source code analysis with just a few configurations/steps. It can then be used as a step before building artifacts in your Build workflow. Or you can use create a utility to execute frequently. You can also add a quality gate in your pipeline, to enforce standards.
