Analyze a project locally

To be able to run the analysis, make sure the project can be successfully built and run in the desired environment, that is, a JRE is properly configured, project dependencies are installed, build scripts or startup tasks are executed, and so on.

To start, pull the image from Docker Hub (only necessary to get the latest version):

docker pull jetbrains/qodana-jvm

and run the analysis locally:

docker run --rm -it -v <source-directory>/:/data/project/ \ -p 8080:8080 jetbrains/qodana-jvm --show-report

with source-directory pointing to the root of your project.

This command will run the analysis on your source code and start the web server to provide a convenient view of the results. Open http://localhost:8080 in your browser to examine the found problems and performed checks. Here you can also reconfigure the analysis. See the User interface overview for details. When done, you can stop the web server by pressing Ctrl-C in the Docker console.
