Session: Defective Java: Mistakes that matter

Thursday, 13:10 - 14:00
Track: Java

This talk will describe various Java coding mistakes made by experienced developers in production code. You'll learn things to watch out for, and various techniques for finding the mistakes. In practice, code contains lots of mistakes that don't cause serious problems in practice, so I'll suggest ways to focus on the mistakes that matter. As part of this discuss the use of of static analysis in general, and FindBugs in particular, as well as the new cloud-based community review provided by FindBugs 2.0.
