Class RecordTypeParameterNameCheck

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Configurable, Contextualizable

    public class RecordTypeParameterNameCheck
    extends AbstractNameCheck

    Checks that record type parameter names conform to a specified pattern.

    • Property format - Specifies valid identifiers. Type is java.util.regex.Pattern. Default value is "^[A-Z]$".

    To configure the check:

    An example of how to configure the check for names that are only a single letter is:


     <module name="RecordTypeParameterName">
       <property name="format" value="^[a-zA-Z]$"/>


     record MyRecord1<T> {} // OK
     record MyRecord2<t> {} // OK
     record MyRecord3<abc> {} // violation, the record type parameter
                                  // name should match the regular expression "^[a-zA-Z]$"
