By default, the HTML report generated by FindBugs specifies the name of the Java class and line number(s) of each issue it reports. Is there a way to tell FindBugs to hyperlink the report to the corresponding source code? So far a search of StackOverflow and Google has not turned up any solutions.

Note that I am looking for an HTML solution as opposed to something that plugs into an IDE such as Eclipse.

If you use the FindBugs plugin, Jenkins will serve up a nicely formatted report with hyperlinks to source code. I do not know whether you can request a standalone copy of that report from Jenkins.
