Sonar Cobol Plugin released

We are happy to announce the release of the Sonar Cobol Plugin.

SonarSource has developed its own state of the art Cobol parser and packaged it as a Sonar Plugin. It allows to perform objective and automated Cobol code reviews against pre-defined or homemade coding best practices. This plugin benefits from the power of the Open Source Sonar platform by reusing all available core services : Violations drilldown, Hotspots, Code viewer with syntax highlighting, TimeMachine, Clouds, Coding rule profile management, etc. This plugin can also be used along with the SonarSource Views plugin to aggregate Cobol projects and easily manage a portfolio with millions lines of code.

More information available in the plugin page.
