Description Svata Dedic 2015-11-10 07:28:42 UTC
1/ The IDE should suggest @NonNull annotation for methods, which, on all its normal exit paths, produce non-null result. Even lazy getters have often such a property 

2/ If a method parameter si blindly dereferenced, the IDE could offer @NonNull annotation to the parameter or assert param != null guard, to help the programmer if the non-nullness is a designed property.
