SonarLint for Eclipse Stops marking up source files

sonarlint
java

(Kevin) #1

Folks,

I have recently updated my Eclipse to

Version: 2018-09 (4.9.0)
Build id: 20180917-1800

and SonarLint version 4.0.0.201810170711.

I have Java and Javascript projects bound to an internal sonar server.

When I look on the Sonar server UI there are many issues, but SonarLint does not mark out any issues.

The editor window does not have any SonarLint markup and SonarLint > Analyze > Progress table shows an empty grid with the expected number of files being called out

Hi Kevin,
SLE supports only a specific subset of analyzers.
From https://www.sonarlint.org/eclipse/
Java, Javascript,Php, Python
Also what is the version of your Sonarqube server ?
SLE 4.0.0 works only with later versions of analyzers, that are available for Sonarqube server > 5.6.x
See releasenotes SLE 4.0.0 first entry.
If this is the case, your SLE console will have several entries like that:
Code analyzer '...' version '...' is not supported (minimal version is '...'). Skip downloading it.
And after editing a file of a project with a binding to a SQ Server < 6.x console has:

No language available
No analyzers installed
Start analysis
Index files
1 files indexed
Quality profiles:
Found 0 issue(s)

Regards,
Gilbert

Hi Gilbert,

Thanks for your response!

I am binding to SonarQube server that has " SonarQube™ technology is powered by SonarSource SA Version 6.2 - LGPL v3 - [Community]" at the footer of its about page.

I am analysing Java and Javascript projects only. I have had successful analysis on previous EClipse versions eg Oxygen and previous versions of SonarLint for Eclipse. The SonarQube server has not changed. Is my understanding correct when I say the SQ API would be greater 5.6, or do I need to make further checks?

When I change a file I see no SonarLint activity.
When Java Project > SonarLInt > Analyze I see:

  • The progress tab shows the SonarLInt activity
  • The console tab remains unchanged
  • The SonarLint Report tab is displayed with a blank/empty grid with 0 Items. The number of files and timestamp are at the bottom.

This morning I tried a Javascript project > SonarLInt > Analyze and it is processing for 1o minutes at 0% complete.

When I check Eclipse > Window > Show View > Error Log I do not see any entries added (SLE Or other)

In previous configurations I did see SonarLint activity in the console tab, but not now.

I am sure I have some configuration wrong.

Hi Kevin,
just a guess, is Eclipse project / properties “Run SonarLint automatically” activated ?
If your Eclipse project or package or file has a substring ‘test’ it may be affected from the global SLE settings, see Window/Preferences/SonarLint/Test file regular expression.
Also check your SLE console - set Verbose output - for entries like that, to make sure your SQ server doesn’t use incompatible version of analyzers:

Code analyzer 'plsql' version '3.0.1.1427' is not supported (minimal version is '3.1'). Skip downloading it.
 Code analyzer 'java' version '4.15.0.12310' is not supported (minimal version is '5.1'). Skip downloading it.
 Code analyzer 'web' version '2.5.0.476' is not supported (minimal version is '2.6'). Skip downloading it.
 Code analyzer 'typescript' version '1.1.0.1079' is not supported (minimal version is '1.5'). Skip downloading it.
 Code analyzer 'swift' version '3.0.0.1969' is not supported (minimal version is '3.1'). Skip downloading it.
 Code analyzer 'cpp' version '4.14.0.9331' is not supported (minimal version is '5.0'). Skip downloading it.
 Code analyzer 'python' version '1.8.0.1496' is not supported (minimal version is '1.9.1'). Skip downloading it.
 Code analyzer 'javascript' version '3.3.0.5702' is not supported (minimal version is '4.0'). Skip downloading it.

Regards,
Gilbert

Hi Gilbert,

That is it. The versions installed are

· SonarJava 4.5.0.8398 installed

· SonarJS 2.18.0.3454 installed

So those are not going to work. I will put in a request to update them. But what version of SonarLint will support those plugin versions?

Kevin

Hi Kevin,
SLE 3.6.0 will probably work with this versions. But it is recommended to use the latest versions of analyzers, because of new rules, bugfixes, better performance … etc.
Your versions are rather old, Sonar Java has 5.9.1 now, SonarJS 5.0
With SQ 6.7.5 LTS or SQ 7.4 refined ruleimplementations won’t affect legacy code due to issue backdating, so no problems here. Just update the analyzers in your SQ staging/test instance and see if it works for you.
With the latest analyzers you may also use SLE 4.0.0
Regards,
Gilbert

Thanks Gilbert. This issue is resolved until I get those versions updated.
