Code Inspection: Fully qualified name usage

Reports the fully qualified class names that can be shortened by adding the use statement.

By replacing fully qualified class names with import statements, you can avoid repetition of long namespaces and thus improve code readability. For more information, refer to Using namespaces: Aliasing/Importing (

In the following example, the usage of the \Foo\Bar\Baz fully qualified name is replaced with the use statement.

namespace Foo\Bar { class Baz {} } namespace A { new \Foo\Bar\Baz(); }
namespace Foo\Bar { class Baz {} } namespace A { use Foo\Bar\Baz; new Baz(); }
