Inconsistent 'AtomicFieldUpdater' declaration

Reports issues with AtomicLongFieldUpdater, AtomicIntegerFieldUpdater, or AtomicReferenceFieldUpdater fields (the java.util.concurrent.atomic package).

The reported issues are identical to the runtime problems that can happen with atomic field updaters: specified field not found, specified field not accessible, specified field has a wrong type, and so on.


  • class A { private static volatile int value = 0; private static final AtomicIntegerFieldUpdater updater = AtomicIntegerFieldUpdater.newUpdater((A.class), "value"); // warning: Field 'value' has 'static' modifier }
  • class B { private static final AtomicIntegerFieldUpdater updater = AtomicIntegerFieldUpdater.newUpdater(B.class, "value"); // warning: No field named 'value' found in class 'B' }
