Local class

Reports local classes.

A local class is a named nested class declared inside a code block. Local classes are uncommon and may therefore be confusing. In addition, some code standards discourage the use of local classes.


class Example { void test() { class Local { // here } new Local(); } }

After the quick-fix is applied:

class Example { void test() { new Local(); } private static class Local { // here } }
