'default' not last case in 'switch'

Reports switch statements or expressions in which the default branch is positioned before another case. Such a construct is unnecessarily confusing. A quick-fix is provided to move the default branch to the last position, if possible.

Example:

switch (n) { default: System.out.println(); break; case 1: break; }

After the quick-fix is applied:

switch (n) { case 1: break; default: System.out.println(); break; }
