Subject [jira] Created: (CASSANDRA-1252) @Override annotation on implementing methods
Date Tue, 06 Jul 2010 00:02:50 GMT
@Override annotation on implementing methods

                 Key: CASSANDRA-1252
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Core
            Reporter: Folke Behrens

The current [CodeStyle|] states that one should
"avoid redundant @Override annotations when implementing abstract or interface methods." A
rationale is not given.

The @Override annotation is not redundant. When putting it on implementing methods it helps
detecting abstract methods of super-classes or interfaces that were removed. This is especially
important when extending abstract classes or implementing interfaces from external libraries.

Please tag every overriding method with @Override and make compiler warnings errors.
