Small Lint

OK, I've been using this at work lately (and on my own code for a little while) and quite frankly, I am amazed at the number of code smells this thing finds. Usually, it points to a bigger problem, but just by looking at a few rules of sloppy programming (and inexperience), it's incredible what it finds. All of the Smalltalk environments that I know have it and I'm going to spend some time this weekend to play with the Dolphin port. Just want to say GOOD WORK! We need more tools like this in Smalltalk! Now, is there an equivalent in Java? I know eclipse has some warnings you can turn on, but nothing to the extent of Small Lint...WOW....=) Chalk this tool as YACST(tm)(Yet Another Cool Smalltalk Tool).
