Static analysis tool for Java source code

PMD scans Java source code and looks for potential problems like

* Possible bugs - empty try/catch/finally/switch statements
* Dead code - unused local variables, parameters and private methods
* Suboptimal code - wasteful String/StringBuffer usage
* Overcomplicated expressions - unnecessary if statements, for loops
  that could be while loops
* Duplicate code - copied/pasted code means copied/pasted bugs
