Checkstyle is a development tool to help programmers write Java code that adheres to a coding standard.
It automates the process of checking Java code to spare humans of this boring (but important) task. This
makes it ideal for projects that want to enforce a coding standard. Checkstyle is highly configurable and can
be made to support almost any coding standard. An example configuration file is supplied supporting the
Sun Code Conventions. As well, other sample configuration files are supplied for other well known conventions.
