Hardcoded strings

Reports any instances of hardcoded String literals.

Hardcoded String literals are probably errors in an internationalized environment. This inspection won't report empty strings and strings consisting only of whitespaces. A quick-fix is available to transform a string literal into a java.util.ResourceBundle.getString() method call.

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 | Internationalization
