Class without no-arg constructor

Reports classes without a constructor that takes no arguments (i.e. has no parameters). No-arg constructors are necessary in some contexts. For example, if a class needs to be created using reflection.


public class Bean { private String name; public Bean(String name) { = name; } }

Locating this inspection


Can be used to locate inspection in e.g. Qodana configuration files, where you can quickly enable or disable it, or adjust its settings.

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.

Settings or Preferences | Editor | Inspections | Java | JavaBeans issues

Use the checkbox below to ignore classes without explicit constructors. The compiler provides a default no-arg constructor to such classes.
