             Summary: [FB] Package org.apache.ofbiz.base.lang.test
                 Key: OFBIZ-9565
             Project: OFBiz
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: base
    Affects Versions: Trunk
            Reporter: Dennis Balkir
            Priority: Minor

Return value of method without side effect is ignored

This code calls a method and ignores the return value. However our analysis 
shows that the method (including its implementations in subclasses if any) does 
not produce any effect other than return value. Thus this call can be removed.

We are trying to reduce the false positives as much as possible, but in some 
cases this warning might be wrong. Common false-positive cases include:

- The method is designed to be overridden and produce a side effect in other 
projects which are out of the scope of the analysis.

- The method is called to trigger the class loading which may have a side 

- The method is called just to get some exception.

If you feel that our assumption is incorrect, you can use a @CheckReturnValue 
annotation to instruct FindBugs that ignoring the return value of this method 
is acceptable.
