The CodeNarc Team is proud to announce the release of version 1.2.

CodeNarc is a static analysis tool for Groovy source code.

Version 1.2 includes 5 new rules and several enhancements and bug fixes. See the full details in the release notes.

New Rules

  • StaticFieldsBeforeInstanceFields rule (convention) - Enforce that all static fields are above all instance fields within a class.
  • StaticMethodsBeforeInstanceMethods rule (convention) - Enforce that all static methods within each visibility level (public, protected, private) are above all instance methods within that same visibility level.
  • PublicMethodsBeforeNonPublicMethods rule (convention) - Enforce that all public methods are above protected and private methods.
  • GrailsDomainStringPropertyMaxSize rule (grails) - String properties in Grails domain classes have to define maximum size otherwise the property is mapped to VARCHAR(255) causing runtime exceptions to occur.
  • NoJavaUtilDate rule (convention) - Do not use java.util.Date. Prefer the classes in the java.time.* packages. Checks for construction of new java.util.Date objects.

    The Grails CodeNarc Plugin has been updated to version 1.2 as well.
