Overloaded varargs method

Reports varargs methods with the same name as other methods in the class or in a superclass. Overloaded methods that take a variable number of arguments can be very confusing because it is often unclear which overload gets called.


public void execute(Runnable... r) {} // warning public void execute(Runnable r1, Runnable r2) {}

Locating this inspection

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.
