Call to inherited method looks like call to local method

Reports calls to a superclass method from an anonymous, inner or local class, if a method with the same signature exists in the code surrounding the class. In this case it may seem that a method from the surrounding code is called, when in fact it is a call to a method from the superclass.

To clarify the intent of the code, it is recommended to add an explicit super qualifier to the method call.

Example:

class Parent { void ambiguous(){} } class Example { void ambiguous(){} class Inner extends Parent { void example(){ ambiguous(); //warning } } }

After the quick-fix is applied:

class Parent { void ambiguous(){} } class Example { void ambiguous(){} class Inner extends Parent { void example(){ super.ambiguous(); } } }
