PMD is a rule-based static source code analyzer. In contrast to
Findbugs, which looks at the compiled code, PMD looks at the sources
for everything from style guideline violations to bad coding
practices. It comes with a bunch of rulesets, and it's extensible so
you can set your own project-level standards by sharing rulesets
within a team.
PMD and Findbugs overlap in some areas, but it's better to have too
much diagnostic information than too little, in my opinion.
There are a number of similar tools out there too:
