Description akobberup 2014-01-09 08:13:19 UTC
If i in my java class refer a method in an interface that do not exist, the IDE via a hint offers to create the method in the interface. Awesome.
The generated method is always generated with the modifier "public" even though that is implied, as all methods in interfaces are public.

Could the "public" part of the method be left out of the generated awesomeness?

This is a matter of coding convention. A code generator option should exist for that, used also by refactoring tools (pull up etc)

It is - I agree that an option would be the ideal solution :)
