Checkstyle tips

If you don't see the OSU checkstyle settings available, try out these instructions:

  1. Go to your preferences in Eclipse, and select the Checkstyle tab on the left.
  2. Click on new and enter each box as the picture shows: remote source, with that HTML. The name can be anything you'd like.
  3. Select it and set it as the default and you're set!

Make sure you always fix checkstyle warnings before turning in projects. 9/10 times they are important and point out something wrong! But there are instances where its alright to ignore it.
