How to ignore a complete Java package in Checkstyle

One of my Java projects contains generated code which produces quite a few Checkstyle warnings. To ignore all files in this package, I needed to configure Checkstyle’s module SuppressionFilter as described in Checkstyle’s documentation:

File checkstyle.xml (Checkstyle config):

<module name="SuppressionFilter">
    <property name="file" value="suppressions.xml"/>

File suppressions.xml:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE suppressions PUBLIC
    "-//Puppy Crawl//DTD Suppressions 1.1//EN"
    <suppress checks="." files="[\\/]PACKAGENAME[\\/].*\.java$"/>

This ignores all files whose path contains /PACKAGENAME/.

To create code blocks or other preformatted text, indent by four spaces:

    This will be displayed in a monospaced font. The first four 
    spaces will be stripped off, but all other whitespace
    will be preserved.
    Markdown is turned off in code blocks:

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
