SonarLint for VSCode 3.7 - JRE included for most platforms, Java rules for AWS cloud applications


This new release of SonarLint for VSCode makes it simpler to get started for those who don’t have a JRE already set up in their system.
In fact, we’ve decided to embed the runtime in SonarLint (currently a JRE 17) for those platforms:

  • Windows x86-64
  • Linux x86-64
  • macOS x86-64 (Intel) and arm-64 (Apple Silicon)

If you are on one of those platforms, you don’t need to download a separate JRE and to reference it in the SonarLint configuration.

With this release, we’ve also added Java rules to help you develop cloud-native applications for AWS without falling into common pitfalls.

Among the other changes we’ve shipped:
