             Summary: Consider usings a tool for finding common bugs
                 Key: JBTM-1020
                 URL: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/JBTM-1020
             Project: JBoss Transaction Manager
          Issue Type: Feature Request
      Security Level: Public (Everyone can see)
            Reporter: Paul Robinson
            Assignee: Tom Jenkinson
             Fix For: 5.0.0.M2

A recent bug in XTS recovery was found to be caused by the use of == rather than .equals() for String comparison. This type of bug can go unnoticed for a long period of time as == will usually return true for Strings with identical contents. However, it is not guaranteed.

I think it would be handy to run some tool every now and then to look for these types of bugs. I'm not sure how feasible this would be as it may return too many false positives.
