Inspectopedia Help

Method name same as parent class name

Reports methods that have the same name as the superclass of the method's class, as such a method name may be confusing.

This inspection doesn't check interfaces or superclasses deep in the hierarchy.


class Parent {} class Child extends Parent { public Parent Parent() { return null; } }

A quick-fix that renames such methods is available only in the editor.
