even the latest version of sonarlint does not support the external plugins(pmd,findbugs,checkstyle etc).it only uses the squid rules in the sonarqube which are written by modifying and optimising the external plugin rules.

the reason why sonarlint doesn't support external plugins is that pmd,findbugs analyses code in different manners pmd compares the code by making a syntax tree and findbugs need byte code to this takes up a lot of time.

to analyse in a faster and efficient manner the sonarlint only supports squid rules from sonar i don't think there will be an update to support external plugins like pmd,findbugs etc.because most of the external plugin rules have rewritten in an optimised manner in sonarqube.
