Some tools you might want to constantly run your code against:

http://pmd.sourceforge.net/
http://checkstyle.sourceforge.net/
http://findbugs.sourceforge.net/
Use a decent IDE. Eclipse or may be IDEA (if you dont have any financial constraints)

For example in Eclipse you press
Ctrl + Shift + F - To format code cleanly (as per Suns standards)
Ctrl + Shift + O - To optimise imports
Ctrl + Shift + T - To refactor.

In addition to this, it can point you to a whole bunch of intuitive mistakes like
a) Passing a parameter and not using it
b) Having a field but never reading / writing it
...and the list goes on...
