Class SuppressWarningsHolder

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Configurable, Contextualizable

    public class SuppressWarningsHolder
    extends AbstractCheck

    Maintains a set of check suppressions from @SuppressWarnings annotations. It allows to prevent Checkstyle from reporting violations from parts of code that were annotated with @SuppressWarnings and using name of the check to be excluded. You can also define aliases for check names that need to be suppressed.

    • Property aliasList - Specify aliases for check names that can be used in code within SuppressWarnings. Type is java.lang.String[]. Default value is null.

    To prevent FooCheck violations from being reported write:

     @SuppressWarnings("foo") interface I { }
     @SuppressWarnings("foo") enum E { }
     @SuppressWarnings("foo") InputSuppressWarningsFilter() { }
     

    Some real check examples:

    This will prevent from invocation of the MemberNameCheck:

     @SuppressWarnings({"membername"})
     private int J;
     

    You can also use a checkstyle prefix to prevent compiler from processing this annotations. For example this will prevent ConstantNameCheck:

     @SuppressWarnings("checkstyle:constantname")
     private static final int m = 0;
     

    The general rule is that the argument of the @SuppressWarnings will be matched against class name of the checker in lower case and without Check suffix if present.

    If aliasList property was provided you can use your own names e.g below code will work if there was provided a ParameterNumberCheck=paramnum in the aliasList:

     @SuppressWarnings("paramnum")
     public void needsLotsOfParameters(@SuppressWarnings("unused") int a,
       int b, int c, int d, int e, int f, int g, int h) {
       ...
     }
     

    It is possible to suppress all the checkstyle warnings with the argument "all":

     @SuppressWarnings("all")
     public void someFunctionWithInvalidStyle() {
       //...
     }
