Access to 'static' field locked on instance data

Reports access to non-constant static fields that are locked on either this or an instance field of this.

Locking a static field on instance data does not prevent the field from being modified by other instances, and thus may result in unexpected race conditions.


static String test; public void foo() { synchronized (this) { System.out.println(test); // warning } }

There is a quick-fix that allows ignoring static fields of specific types. You can manage those ignored types in the inspection options.

Use the inspection options to specify which classes used for static fields should be ignored.
