plsql:MultiLineCommentFormatCheck rule marks multiline comment as wrong


we’ve found some unexpected behavior (at least for us).

Version info:

  • SonarQube Developer Edition - Version 8.0
  • SonarPLSQL Code Analyzer for PL/SQL 3.4.1

The rule Each line in a multi-line comment should start with a “*” character. marked the multiline comment (example bellow) as a wrong one.
But we believe it’s a proper multiline comment starting with the “*” on the second line.
Maybe the problem is in the closing characters " */ " on the same line, but we find it OK to have it like this.

  /** CSV import processing status - In the files of the source directory we search for the last
  * file group for the import according to the configuration. */

Thank you in advance for taking a look at this case.

Best regards,

Indeed, that looks like a false positive.
I created SONARPLSQL-736 to track it.

Thank you for your feedback.

Thank you.
