Inspectopedia Help

Local variable type can be omitted

Reports redundant local variable types.

These types can be inferred from the context and thus replaced with var.

Example:

void test(InputStream s) { try (InputStream in = s) {} }

After the fix is applied:

void test(InputStream s) { try (var in = s) {} }

This inspection depends on the Java feature 'Local variable type inference' which is available since Java 10.
