JPCC : Java Glossary
I have left this tombstone entry for historical interest.
Was Jason Teagle’s JPCC (Java Post-Compile Checker), a tool to check Java
source for an error that the regular compilers ever warn you about such as:
- Accidentally using the same name for a local variable as an instance or static
variable. Often when you do this, you really meant to access the instance or static
- Functions with the same name as the class (and thus probably intended as
constructors), but that are returning a value.
- Cases (including default) that drop through without break.
- Variable assignments of the form xxx = xxx or this.xxx = xxx, where the
assignment may have no effect or may be confusing a local variable with a class /
instance variable (i.e., xxx is the same name both sides of the equals).
IDE (Integrated Development Environment) Inspectors now do this checks and the compilers
themselves now do many of them.
