In recent versions of javac,
AnnotationMirror#toString returns a string representation of the annotation
that uses simple names. If the string is used in generated source code, it may
require additional imports.
For example, instead of this:
@com.pkg.Foo(bar = com.pkg.Bar.class, baz = com.pkg.Baz.ONE)
javac now generates the following:
@Foo(bar = Bar.class, baz = Baz.ONE)
which may require imports for
AnnotationMirrors#toString method produces a string that uses
fully qualified names for annotations, class literals, and enum constants,
ensuring that source code containing that string will compile without additional
AnnotationMirrors#toString may be beneficial even if the string isn’t
being used in generated code, e.g. if it’s part of a diagnostic message or
assertion failure message, since the fully qualified names makes it clearer
which types are being referred to.
Suppress false positives by adding the suppression annotation
@SuppressWarnings("AnnotationMirrorToString") to the enclosing element.
