Findbug Filters with your Maven Findbugs plugin
Do you want to pick the Findbugs bug categories you report?
This is done within your project.properties file. Below is a sample entry from your project.properties file:
maven.findbugs.includeFilter = /Apache/Maven1.0/support/findbugs/includeFilter.xml
This parameter takes a filename of an XML file that contains a definition of the bug(s) to include in the report.
A file could contain the following:
<Match classregex="jsp_servlet.*" >
<BugCode name="Nm,DLS" />
<Match classregex=".*" >
<BugCode name="Nm" />
The above tells Findbugs to include Nm and DLS category bugs for all jsp_servlet.* packages and Nm category bugs for the remainder of the code.
maven.findbugs.excludeFilter = /Apache/Maven1.0/support/findbugs/excludeFilter.xml
This parameter takes a filename of an XML file that contains a definition of the bug(s) to exclude in the report.
The file format would be the sames as that for the includeFilter but would state what bugs not to report.
