Subject [jira] Created: (LANG-636) text.ExtendedMessageFormat doesn't override java.text.MessageFormat.equals(Object)
Date Wed, 21 Jul 2010 10:55:49 GMT
text.ExtendedMessageFormat doesn't override java.text.MessageFormat.equals(Object)

                 Key: LANG-636
             Project: Commons Lang
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: lang.text.*
            Reporter: Sebb
             Fix For: 3.0


Bug: org.apache.commons.lang3.text.ExtendedMessageFormat doesn't override java.text.MessageFormat.equals(Object)
Pattern id: EQ_DOESNT_OVERRIDE_EQUALS, type: Eq, category: STYLE

This class extends a class that defines an equals method and adds fields, but doesn't define
an equals method itself. Thus, equality on instances of this class will ignore the identity
of the subclass and the added fields. Be sure this is what is intended, and that you don't
need to override the equals method. Even if you don't need to override the equals method,
consider overriding it anyway to document the fact that the equals method for the subclass
just return the result of invoking super.equals(o).
