Inspectopedia Help

Non-constant field with upper-case name

Reports non-static non-final fields whose names are all in upper case.

Such fields may cause confusion by breaking a common naming convention and are often used by mistake.


public static int THE_ANSWER = 42; //a warning here: final modifier is missing

A quick-fix that renames such fields is available only in the editor.
