Hi ,
I am using PMD code quality tool with eclipse.
I am trying to to write a new rule as per my coding standards.
I need to write a xpath query which matches the following rules.

1.Brackets i.e.{} should begin and end on a new line.
ex:if (foo)
// code here

2.Include spaces around operators.
value = num + y;
value=num+y; -> (missing spaces around = sign and + sign).

I have gone through the basic xpath tutorials.

please Let me know can we achieve the above rules using xpath.If so please give me a example for the above.

Currently I am trying to write the xpath query by using PMD rule Designer.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
