We used it for a while on Mylyn, at a time when our policy was
not having zero compiler warnings on commit. That’s changed, and I was
thinking that we should try to go after fixing all the improved JDT warnings
before going after additional ones. So we stopped using it. But FindBugs does
have some nice checking that the JDT compiler does not, and I’d be interested
in adopting it as a best practice if a few other projects are finding it useful

I have used FindBugs and was impressed by
the high signal to noise ratio. You can also configure it to only report new
issues that have been introduced since a certain baseline. That way, you can
avoid having to look through false positives more than once.

Makes sense to me.
