What it does: Error Prone is a Java bug detection and static analysis tool. It is integrated into the Java compiler and catches bugs at compile time.

Why is it useful: Error Prone augments the compiler’s type analysis so you can catch more mistakes before they end up as bugs in production. It tells you about mistakes immediately after they’re made and produces suggested fixes, allowing you to build tooling on it.

What it does: Copybara is a tool for transforming and moving code between repositories.

Why is it useful: Source code needs to exist in multiple repositories and Copybara allows you to transform and move source code between these repositories.

Copybara requires you to choose one of the repositories to be the authoritative repository so that there is always one source of truth, and so, for example, allows a confidential repository and a public repository to be maintained in sync.
