Reviewing new code and don't know where to start? Try FindBugs

It can be daunting to know where to start reading when presented with a new source code tree. One idea is to use a bug-checker like Lint or FindBugs to take you to the "hotspots" -- these are good points to start reading the code. It also keeps you awake as you ask yourself, "Why did the bug checker flag this bit of code as a bug?". If the code is obviously correct, at least take the time to understand the logic of the surrounding code, so the trip won't be wasted.
