> 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).
