    Static analysis tool is a technique, it has no direct relationship with Jenkins. There are various tools that you can find from Google.

Jenkins is a continuous integration server, also known as a build server. It takes the source code and builds it, runs tests and execute any other commands you see fit. Afterwards it can report about the status of these commands like success and or failures.

Code analysis programs can be started and reported on with Jenkins, but this is not something that is included by default.

A common open source code analysis tool I would look at is SonarQube. It has plugins for most programming languages. SonarQube has some command-line tools to process the code and then push it to the web-server for view the results. Jenkins or any other build can push the results from the command-line tool to the SonarQube web-application.

  • Check sonarlint.org/intellij I never used it though. Dec 22, 2016 at 8:39
  • No idea, that is a different question, questionably offtopic on SQA.SE :) Dec 22, 2016 at 11:08
  • I quiet to sonarqube, because last 4 days I was trying to install sonarqube but cannot get a success. So what's your opinion still I do with sonarqube or look with any other tool ?

    All steps have Linux, Mac and windows commands if they differ. It's not windows focused it's for all platforms. Dec 26, 2016 at 11:46

SonarLint can be fully integrated with the IntelliJ or Eclipse without any difficulties. https://github.com/SonarSource/sonarlint-intellij


If you are looking for static analysis tools, you can probably find a lot of good information with a simple google or wikipedia search. What to do to get started depends heavily on what tool you are using. One Static Analysis tool that you can use in nDpend and if you want more information or thoughts on how to use it, Erik Dietrich has some really good posts on their blog with useful and interesting ways to use static analysis
