The problem

The Google Java Style Guide ยง6.1 requires that a method is marked with the @Override annotation whenever it is legal. This includes a class method overriding a superclass method, a class method implementing an interface method, and an interface method respecifying a superinterface method.

Exception: @Override may be omitted when the parent method is @Deprecated.

Suppression

Suppress false positives by adding an @SuppressWarnings("MissingOverride") annotation to the enclosing element.
