Steps to Analyze a XML Project
- Install SonarQube Server (see Setup and Upgrade for more details)
- Install SonarQube Scanner and be sure your can call sonar-scanner from the directory where you have your source code
- Install SonarXML (see Installing a Plugin for more details)
Run your analysis with the SonarQube Scanner by executing the following command from the root directory of the project:
- Follow the link provided at the end of the analysis to browse your project's quality in SonarQube UI
Assuming steps 1-3 above have already been completed, you'll want to encapsulate your analysis parameters in a sonar-project.properties file at the root of your project (see a sample project on GitHub: https://github.com/SonarSource/sonar-scanning-examples/tree/master/sonarqube-scanner). Then subsequent analyses can simply be run with:
With SonarXML, you can also:
- create your own Custom Rules
Validating Files Against Specific Schemas
Files can be validated against specific schemas thanks to the XML Schema Validation rule.
Within the same project some files can be validated against schema 'S1', others against schema 'S2', others against schemas 'S3' and 'S4', and so on. Therefore, this rule must be copied and configured as many times as you have pairs of files/schemas.
- Schema validation is performed by the Xerces parser using XML schemas (XSDs).
- For validation of XHTML files it is recommended to use autodetect, xhtml1-transitional or xhtml1-strict.
