Welcome to the community!

What language are we talking about?


Forgot to mention: Java.


Hello @scao,

The only change that we did in for this rule recently is to change the key from S00113 to S113.
Even though we did our best to make this change invisible for users, I suspect something misbehaved there.

What was the version from which you upgraded?
Can you check that this rule is still enabled in your project?

It was from 7 I think.

The rule is enabled, at least it’s part of our quality profile

It seems that you continued the investigation there:

Let’s try to finish the discussion in the other post, and come back to this problem later if it’s not already solved in the other one.
