Synopsis:It is somewhat confusing to have a field name with the same name as a method
Language:Java
Severity Level:4
Category:Naming


Description:
It is somewhat confusing to have a field name with the same name as a method. While this is totally legal, having information (field) and actions (method) is not clear naming.
public class Foo {
	Object bar;
	// bar is data or an action or both?
	void bar() {
	}
}
