'finalize()' called explicitly

Reports calls to Object.finalize().

Calling Object.finalize() explicitly may result in objects being placed in an inconsistent state. The garbage collector automatically calls this method on an object when it determines that there are no references to this object.

The inspection doesn't report calls to super.finalize() from within implementations of finalize() as they're benign.


MyObject m = new MyObject(); m.finalize(); System.gc()
