Transient field is not initialized on deserialization

Reports transient fields that are initialized during normal object construction, but whose class does not have a readObject method.

As transient fields are not serialized they need to be initialized separately in a readObject() method during deserialization.

Any transient fields that are not initialized during normal object construction are considered to use the default initialization and are not reported by this inspection.


class Person implements Serializable { transient String name = "Default"; //warning, can actually be a null after deserialization transient String surname; //null is considered the default value and not reported }
