Class OneTopLevelClassCheck

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Configurable, Contextualizable

    public class OneTopLevelClassCheck
    extends AbstractCheck

    Checks that each top-level class, interface, enum or annotation resides in a source file of its own. Official description of a 'top-level' term: 7.6. Top Level Type Declarations. If file doesn't contain public class, interface, enum or annotation, top-level type is the first type in file.

    To configure the check:

     <module name="OneTopLevelClass"/>
     

    ATTENTION: This Check does not support customization of validated tokens, so do not use the "tokens" property.

    An example of code with violations:

     public class Foo { // OK, first top-level class
       // methods
     }
    
     class Foo2 { // violation, second top-level class
       // methods
     }
    
     record Foo3 { // violation, third top-level "class"
         // methods
     }
     

    An example of code without public top-level type:

     class Foo { // OK, first top-level class
       // methods
     }
    
     class Foo2 { // violation, second top-level class
       // methods
     }
     

    An example of code without violations:

     public class Foo { // OK, only one top-level class
       // methods
     }
