Rules to detect constructs that are either broken, extremely confusing or prone to runtime errors.
Edit me


Since: PMD 5.0

Priority: Medium (3)

An XML CDATA section begins with a <!CDATA[ marker, which has only one [, and ends with a ]]> marker, which has only two ].

//cdata-section[starts-with(@Image,'[') or ends-with(@Image,']')]


An extra [ looks like &lt;!CDATA[[]]&gt;, and an extra ] looks like &lt;!CDATA[]]]&gt;.

Use this rule by referencing it:

<rule ref="category/xml/errorprone.xml/MistypedCDATASection" />
