FindBugs Installation in Netbeans 5.5

I have found that there is no really good description on how to download and install the FindBugs plug-in for Netbeans 5.5. The plug-in is part of a larger project on java.net called Software Quality Environment (SQE) If you want to use SQE and FindBugs. Do the following:

1. Start Nebeans 5.5 and go to the Tools --> Options --> Advanced Options (located on bottom left corner of Options screen)

2. Navigate to the IDE Configuration --> System --> Autoupdates Types item in the tree. See below


3. Right click on the Autoupdate Types item to bring up the context menu. Select New --> General Update Center. This will bring up the menu below. I named my update center FindBugs and pressed Finish. See Below.

4. Click on the new FindBugs update center in the tree and change the Server URL entry to

https://sqe.dev.java.net/updatecenters/nbheaven-updatecenter.xml



5. Close the window and you can now use the update center to install and update FindBugs
