Suspicious getter/setter

Reports getter or setter methods that access a field that is not expected by its name. For example, when getY() returns the x field. Usually, it might be a copy-paste error.


class Point { private int x; private int y; public void setX(int x) { // Warning: setter 'setX()' assigns field 'y' this.y = x; } public int getY() { // Warning: getter 'getY()' returns field 'x' return x; } }

Use the checkbox below to report situations when a field in the class has a name that matches a name of a getter or a setter.
