RFF: [RFF] Checkstyle plugin 4.17





Hi Roman,

In another thread it has been pointed out that this version is not compatible with SonarQube 7.6, and that thread links to an 11-day-old Checkstyle plugin issue pointing out this fact. @romani you responded to that issue 11 days ago. It would have been nice if your compatibility report here had reflected that.


Hi Ann,

Sorry for some missed information.
7.6 support is going to be released in next version of plugin. Unfortunately we can not catch up with mainstream to support most recent version. Some time we even miss release of new version , so community helps us to be aware of problems.

There is problem with usage of sonarqube docker container https://github.com/SonarSource/docker-sonarqube/issues/230 that makes extra problems to even try new version in our CI.

I will try to mention in future, know problems.
