Which PMD rulesets should I run to check android code? I see there's an android specific one, but what about the rest? Sorry if this is a silly question, but I'm pretty new to programming and very new to PMD. Thanks!

Monu,
PMD Scans source code and looks for potential problems possible bugs, unused and suboptimal code, over-complicated expressions and duplicate code.

Let us wait for some one who has used PMD for aandroid applications.

Ah! The official site does not provide any rulesets directly; they advertise best practises instead so configuring PMD rules is left to the developer. Fred Grott has been involved with Android for as long as I can remember. He has a knol for this here.

Hope that helps.

Also, if you are interested in formatting your code per Android coding style, see this thread.
