FindBugs - Find the little critters

The log for finding the first computer bug: a Moth

FindBugs is a most excellent program that finds bugs in Java programs by looking for bug patterns. Aditya used it in GlassFish and writes about Finding Bugs made easy.

Once you remove the bugs you will want to be sure they don't creep back in (as with lint) and the best arrangement is to use FindBugs in your IDE. There already was a Plugin for Eclipse and Roumen just reports that Sven Reimers has released a PlugIn for NetBeans. Seems like a real winner - check it out!
