SonarLint requires Eclipse to use Java 8+ as runtime (but you can analyze Java projects targeting older Java versions). For any question or feedback please join the SonarSource Community Forum .

Getting following error:
Unable to read repository at https:\/\/eclipse-uc.sonarlint.org/content.xml.
PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

This is unlikely to be an issue on our side. This could be caused by corporate proxy or outdated JVM. See https://stackoverflow.com/questions/40667733/unable-to-download-plugin-f... for some possible workarounds.

Also having the same issue with regards to lombok.
Using Eclipse Neon Release (4.6.0), SonarLint 5.1, Lombok 1.18.12.
When opening a Java file in Eclipse that uses Lombok annotations an exception is shown in the IDE:
An internal error occurred during: “SonarLint processing file /…java”.
Other related posts/forums suggest updating Lombok to 1.18.12 which did not resolve the issue for me.
Submitted by Johan Goosen on Mon, 2020-05-18 10:54
The issue is indeed resolved with Lombok 1.18.12.
Upgrading lombok in your project dependencies is not enough, you have to update lombok agent used by Eclipse (check your eclipse.ini).
Submitted by Felix L J Mayer on Wed, 2020-02-19 13:49
We use Lombok (https://projectlombok.org/) to reduce boilerplate in our Java code. Lombok also runs as an agent to show the generated boilerplate code in the IDE. That seems to be a problem for SonarLint as it produces these messages:
An internal error occurred during: "SonarLint processing file /platform-api/src/test/java/com/elavon/eliminator/platform/authentication/LdapAuthenticationServiceTest.java".
I had to uninstall the SonarLint plugin because of that.

After installing lombok 1.18.12 in my Eclipse 2019-12 works the Sonarlint fine. And Thanks for the hint to install the newest versions.
Submitted by Jean-Baptiste Lievremont on Thu, 2020-02-20 02:48
Hello, thank you for your feedback.
There were a few reports on our community forum about problems due to interaction with Lombok - see e.g https://community.sonarsource.com/t/sonarlint-eclipse-plugin-eclipse-wit...
Could you please update to the lastest versions of both SonarLint and Lombok? In case of any issue, please report them on the aforementioned forum so that we can track them.

I was wondering if there is already a plugin for Eclipse C/C++ development.
Submitted by Julien HENRY on Mon, 2019-03-18 09:55
It is possible to use SonarLint in connected mode with SonarSource commercial C++ analyzer (assuming you are using CDT). You need to have a commercial version of SonarQube, or use SonarCloud. If you need help, please open a thread on SonarLint community forum.

I've installed SonarLint and correctly linked my project to my remote server and remote project, I've marked as 'excluded' all the library files of my project (Symfony PHP web project), but when I want to run an analysis, I always get the following error no matter the configuration :
An internal error occurred during: "SonarLint analysis of project dashboard (1 992 files to analyze, 14 excluded)".
Could not initialize class org.sonar.channel.ChannelDispatcher
If someone has already had the same error and knows how to solve it, any help is welcome !

I fixed this problem adding in my eclipse.ini the next lines:
Observation: I'm behind a proxy and configurated my proxy in windows --> preference --> proxy!
Submitted by Julien HENRY on Wed, 2018-02-21 09:07
This is a composite update site, so Eclipse should be looking first for https://eclipse-uc.sonarlint.org/compositeContent.xml (which exists). If for some reason Eclipse can't get the compositeContent.xml it will try as a fallback fallback to get content.xml (that doesn't exists). So the message is misleading.
If you are behind a corporate proxy, I would check with your infra team why you can't fetch https://eclipse-uc.sonarlint.org/compositeContent.xml.

I have the same Problem, after "Confirm selected..." I got:

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

I can click on both of those links you provided, while in the office which does have a corporate fire wall, and I can retrieve both of the XML files.

Is there a way to add SonarLint plugin using the dropins folder?
Submitted by Alpesh Shah on Thu, 2016-12-01 08:29
Goal of installing this plugin is to see issues before actually shown on build machine. However, for me issues in Eclipse reported by sonar lint is different from reported on server. We are using server version 5.6 and sonarlint version 2.3.1.

Do we need a SourceForge account to be able to download / install SonarLint plugin? I get prompted for a SourceForge userid / password when I try to install this. Doesn't seem to be a requirement for other plugins....
Submitted by Julien HENRY on Thu, 2015-12-17 15:07
This is very strange since we have no relation at all with SourceForge. Can you please join SonarLint user group so that we can investigate (this is not the best place to handle support).
