Inspectopedia Help

Static collection

Reports static fields of a Collection type. While it's not necessarily a problem, static collections often cause memory leaks and are therefore prohibited by some coding standards.


public class Example { static List<String> list = new ArrayList<>(); }

Configure the inspection:

  • Use the Ignore weak static collections or maps option to ignore the fields of the java.util.WeakHashMap type.
