Not sure whether this is a false-positive…
No issue is raised by S2885 in this case:
public static final DateFormat FORMAT = DateFormat.getDateInstance();
(static field is initialized with
Is that correct? (are there perhaps too many false-positives possible in this case?)
- SonarJava: 6.3 (build 21585)
- SonarQube: Community Edition; Version 7.9.1 (build 27448)
Each call to
DateFormat.getDateInstance() return a new
SimpleDateFormat that should not be used in a multi-thread context. So yes, the rule S2885 should also report the above case. It’s called a
false-negative and I have created the SONARJAVA-3400 ticket to improve the rule.
Thanks for your feedback,
