What is SonarJava? Is it replacement for Checkstyle, PMD, FindBugs?

know-about-sonarjava

SonarJava has a great coverage of well-established quality standards. The SonarJava capability is available in Eclipse and IntelliJ for developers (SonarLint) as well as throughout the development chain for automated code review with on-premise SonarQube or on-line SonarCloud.

SonarJava is a code analyzer for Java projects. Information about the SonarJava features is available below;
Why SonarJava?
SonarQube is currently on the way to deprecate PMD, Checkstyle and Findbugs and use their own technology to analyze Java code (called SonarJava). They do it, because they don’t want to spend their time fixing, upgrading (or waiting on it) those libraries (e.g. for Java 8), which for example uses outdated libraries. Well at least since SonarQube 6.3+ it seems to be that Findbugs is (at the moment) no longer supported as a plugin.
