Subject Re: convention plugin Issue
Date Thu, 19 Dec 2019 05:59:21 GMT
Overriding methods *is **a valid feature* in Java and probably all 
object oriented languages. I'm confident, even at that lowest level, you 
wouldn't be able to avoid methods being overridden. Above those layers 
of code you have many more layers of code to provide the ability to 
communicate with and over web technologies. Again with a high 
probability of more methods being overridden. Eventually you get to the 
Struts framework which is not flat. It is again layers of code, with 
again a high probability of more methods being overridden.

IMHO A developer needs to understand the technology stack used including 
the order of classpaths searched at execution time. A framework is 
intended to help you do a job which implies you know what it's doing.
