Overview

CodeQL for Eclipse is a plugin for Eclipse, used for writing and running CodeQL queries. CodeQL uses the QL language to explore code and quickly find variants of security vulnerabilities and bugs. QL is a powerful query language that combines the best of traditional query languages, such as SQL, with modern object-oriented programming languages. For more information about CodeQL and writing queries, see Learning CodeQL.

In particular, you can use the CodeQL for Eclipse plugin to analyze projects locally and identify particular coding patterns and errors. The plugin provides standard IDE features such as syntax highlighting, jump-to-definition, and tab completion.
