Inspectopedia Help

Single class import

Reports import statements that import single classes (as opposed to entire packages).

Some coding standards prohibit such import statements.

You can configure IntelliJ IDEA to detect and fix such statements with its Optimize Imports command. Go to Settings | Editor | Code Style | Java | Imports and clear the Use single class import checkbox. Thus this inspection is mostly useful for offline reporting on code bases that you don't intend to change.

Locating this inspection


Can be used to locate inspection in e.g. Qodana configuration files, where you can quickly enable or disable it, or adjust its settings.

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.
