Inspectopedia Help

Deprecated member is still used

Reports deprecated classes, methods, and fields that are used in your code nonetheless.


class MyCode { @Deprecated void oldMethod() {}// warning: "Deprecated member is still used" void newMethod() { oldMethod(); // forgotten usage } }

Usages within deprecated elements are ignored.

NOTE: Due to performance reasons, a non-private member is checked only when its name rarely occurs in the project.
