Description villoto 2016-03-09 12:24:41 UTC
Reproducibility: Happens every time

The code completion feature is ok when I want to have a 'public static final Logger LOGGER = ...', but when there is an annotation below this, the code completion doesn't works.


package example;

import org.slf4j.Logger;
import org.slf4j.LoggerFactory;

 * @author Rodrigo Villablanca <>
public class Example {

    private static final Logger LOGGER = LoggerFactory.getLogger(Example.class); //Code completion works, in fact it suggests me the name of variable in capital case.

    public void overrideme() {


class AnotherExample extends Example {
    private static final Logger ... //Code completion doesn't works, because the below annotation @Override, it doesn't suggests name of variable in capital case and neither for the 'LoggerFactory.getLogger(Anothe...' sentence.

    public void overrideme() {

Already fixed in the current dev build.

I am using Netbeans 8.2 Build 201609300101, but this bug stills appearing.

The fix was not added to this build. was it ?
Comment 3 villoto 2017-05-17 16:00:52 UTC
I reopen this bug because using netbeans v8.2 (build 201609300101) this error keeps appearing.
