'Comparator' combinator can be used

Reports Comparator instances defined as lambda expressions that could be expressed using Comparator.comparing() calls. Chained comparisons which can be replaced by Comparator.thenComparing() expression are also reported.


myList.sort((person1, person2) -> person1.getName().compareTo(person2.getName())); myList2.sort((person1, person2) -> { int res = person1.first().compareTo(person2.first()); if(res == 0) res = person1.second().compareTo(person2.second()); if(res == 0) res = person1.third() - person2.third(); return res; });

After the quick-fixes are applied:

myList.sort(Comparator.comparing(Person::getName)); myList2.sort(Comparator.comparing(Person::first) .thenComparing(Person::second) .thenComparingInt(Person::third));
