Java Question

Unable to locate Source XRef to link to

I have a big maven project that uses the pmd plugin for code quality checks.

since I started using the pmd plugin i get the following warning message:

[WARNING] Unable to locate Source XRef to link to - DISABLED

I googled and found that i need to implement the jxr plugin.

so I add the following to the build property in the main pom.xml file.


welp it doesn't really change anything.

any ideas what I need to implement in order to resolve this warning message?

output of
mvn -version

You should add the maven-jxr-plugin to the reportingPlugin section.


Re run it and enjoy.

BTW, maybe you'll need to run once the jxr:jxr goal to first generate some file that will be used by pmd.
