Boxing of already boxed value

Reports boxing of already boxed values.

This is a redundant operation since any boxed value will first be auto-unboxed before boxing the value again. If done inside an inner loop, such code may cause performance problems.

Locating this inspection

Via Settings dialog

Path to the inspection settings via IntelliJ Platform IDE Settings dialog, when you need to adjust inspection settings directly from your IDE.
