A @Provides or @Produces method that returns its single parameter has long been Dagger’s only mechanism for delegating a binding. Since the delegation is implemented via a user-defined method there is a disproportionate amount of overhead for such a conceptually simple operation. @Binds was introduced to provide a declarative way of delegating from one binding to another in a way that allows for minimal overhead in the implementation. @Binds should always be preferred over @Provides or @Produces for delegation.
Suppress false positives by adding an
@SuppressWarnings("UseBinds") annotation to the enclosing element.
