SonarSource is pleased to announce the release of SonarLint for Eclipse version 2.0.

Then, you can bind your project in Eclipse with the corresponding one on the SonarQube server:
And that’s all! Once a project is bound to a SonarQube server, SonarLint will automatically use the right set of rules defined in the quality profile configured for this project on SonarQube.
Note that this connected mode currently does not support commercial plugins – but this will come soon.
Have fun with SonarLint !
