Redundant 'Collection.addAll()' call

Reports Collection.addAll() and Map.putAll() calls immediately after an instantiation of a collection using a no-arg constructor.

Such constructs can be replaced with a single call to a parametrized constructor, which simplifies the code. Also, for some collections the replacement might be more performant.


Set<String> set = new HashSet<>(); set.addAll(Arrays.asList("alpha", "beta", "gamma"));

After the quick-fix is applied:

Set<String> set = new HashSet<>(Arrays.asList("alpha", "beta", "gamma"));
