Static analysis is in the verification of properties of software used in safety-critical computer systems and locating potentially vulnerable/buggy code. it is desirable to make your build fails at compile/test phases to detect faults earlier. Thanks to JSFUnit and Maven, you’ll be able to plug a JSF checker in your build with no effort.

JSFUnit is a test framework for JSF applications. It is designed to allow complete integration testing and unit testing of JSF applications using a simplified API. JSFUnit tests run inside the container, which provides the developer full access to managed beans, the FacesContext, EL Expressions, and the internal JSF component tree. At the same time, you also have access to parsed HTML output of each client request.

JSFUnit provides a set of unit tests for static analysis of JSF applications. Compare to JSFUnit, you can run these tests without any container, in Maven phase “test” like any regular Unit Test

Views tests (JSFUnitStaticAnalysisViewTest.java)

  • Do any of your facelets templates or well formed JSPs reference nonexistent managed beans?
  • Do any of your templates or JSPs have EL expressions for nonexistent managed bean actions or action listeners?

Faces-configurations tests (JSFUnitStaticAnalysisFacesConfigTest.java)

  • Are all of your session and application scoped beans Serializable?
  • Invalid Managed Bean Scope?
  • Missing Managed Bean Class?
  • Faces Configurations Class Inheritance?
  • Missing Setter Methods?
  • Duplicate Managed Bean Names?

TLD tests (JSFUnitStaticAnalysisFacesConfigTest.java)

  • Correct Tag Attribute Types?
  • Unique Tag Names?
  • Correct Tag Inheritance?
  • Unique Tag Attributes?

Install

Put the following in your web project pom.xml (the pom.xml with <packaging>war</packaging>) between <dependencies> .. </dependencies>, Note that this dependency is only available in scope “test”
