      Description

      When two methods have the same implementation, either it was a mistake - something else was intended - or the duplication was intentional, but may be confusing to maintainers. In the latter case, one implementation should invoke the other.

      Noncompliant Code Example

      class Box(length: Int, width: Int, height: Int) {
        def volume: Int = {
          val s = length * width
          s * height
        }
      
        def area: Int = {
          val s = length * width
          s * height
        }
      }
      

      Compliant Solution

      class Box(length: Int, width: Int, height: Int) {
        def volume: Int = {
          val s = length * width
          s * height
        }
      
        def area: Int = {
          length * width
        }
      }
      

      Exceptions

      Methods with fewer than 2 statements are ignored.
