Unnecessary fully qualified name

Reports fully qualified class names that can be shortened.

The quick-fix shortens fully qualified names and adds import statements if necessary.


class ListWrapper { java.util.List<Integer> l; }

After the quick-fix is applied:

import java.util.List; class ListWrapper { List<Integer> l; }
