In order to reproduce run in jclouds-labs
checkstyle-suppressions.xml is not found in jclouds-labs. checkstyle.xml is found because it is included in jclouds-resources.jar. Adding checkstyle-suppressions to jclouds-resources did not work either:
checkstyle-6.1.1 does load supressions from the class path, but IMO incorrectly (see https://github.com/checkstyle/checkstyle/blob/checkstyle-6.1.1/src/main/java/com/puppycrawl/tools/checkstyle/filters/SuppressionsLoader.java )
This won't load stuff from jclouds-resources.jar on the classpath, but resources from checkstyle itself.
Even using current checkstyle will not work, since this code has only been refactored but func-wise not altered.
So we have only a limited number of options (beyond fixing checkstyle).
- Add the file/dir resources/checkstyle-suppressions.xml to jclouds (having an ugly dependency)
- Remove the check triggering the checkstyle problem.
The check triggering the problem where we need the suppressions for, is the "header" module checking for the presence of the proper apache license header in each java file.
May I suggest to remove the "header" check, since it is already covered by the apache-rat tool anyway? (Problem arises because some autogenerated transient code does not include the ASF license header.)
