6 Programming Practices
6.1 @Override: always used That validation could not be checked by Checkstyle. It's need to take a look as parent class. But Checkstyle have no way open or look at another Class file.
6.2 Caught exceptions: not ignored EmptyBlock with option=text. config
test
6.3 Static members: qualified using class Proper validation require parsing other files, sources are not always available.
6.4 Finalizers: not used NoFinalizer config
test
