Consider calling super in constructor

Metadata

ID: java-code-style/call-super-in-constructor

Language: Java

Severity: Notice

Category: Code Style

Description

In Java, it is suggested to call super() in an extended class. This rule will report a violation if both a call to super() and an overloaded constructor are absent.

Non-Compliant Code Examples

public class Foo extends Bar{
    public Foo() {} // missing super()
}

Compliant Code Examples

public class Foo extends Bar{
    public Foo() {
        super(); // calls the Bar constructor
    }
    
    public Foo(int code) {
        this(); // also valid
    }
}
