Light service must be final

Reports classes annotated with the @com.intellij.openapi.components.Service annotation that are not final.

Suggests making a class final if it is concrete.


// MyService.kt @Service(Service.Level.APP) open class MyService

After the quick-fix is applied:

// MyService.kt @Service(Service.Level.APP) class MyService

Suggests removing the @Service annotation if it is an abstract class or interface.


// @Service(Service.Level.APP) abstract class MyService {}

After the quick-fix is applied:

// abstract class MyService {}
