SonarScanner 4.5 StandAlone

We have been pathfinding on using SonarQube to scan our code. It seems the only way to do it is to scan & analyze each components individually. Given that we have close to 25+ components on our product line, this may be a bit too inefficient.

Is this is the only way to scan our code. We are required to do static analysis monthly on our program. Anything that would help us in doing it more efficiency would really be great.

Hi Ron, welcome to the SonarSource Community!

What kind(s) of projects are these? Language? Build technology?

In general we see customers couple analysis with the scope of how their code is built. Do you build the components all together or separately?

We also usually see customer automate analysis as part of their build. It may seem cumbersome to set up analysis for 25 different projects, but the effort will pay dividends once you can have the analysis occur automatically. And automatic is much better and faster feedback than a manual monthly scan!
