it's my first post on these forums. I don't know where to post this (not in OpenAPI nor in plugins, but then where?).
I'm testing IDEA 5.1: incredibly cool IDE!
That said I think I found a slightly misleading bug.
If I create a class containing a nested static class like this:
IDEA highlights "Example" in red, saying that it is never used, which is correct.
However, IDEA's little pop-up message says:
"Private inner class 'Example' is never used"
and my eyes popped-up :)
I think it's plain wrong to call an nested static class an "inner" class.
The JLS is very clear about that if I'm not mistaken:
"An inner class is a nested class that is not explicitly or implicitly declared static."
- § 8.1.2
That definition comes from JLS 2nd edition but didn't change afterwards.
If I am not seeing things, where should I report this so a bug report is filled (it is important, IMHO, to get the terminology right)? (what it is the procedure to follow?) Can I do it with the account I just created to post here?
Thanks in advance and keep on the good work on that incredible IDE,
