Let's imagine we have an interface A and a class B, where B implements A.

public interface A {
* Cool description.
void method(int parameter);

public class B implements A {
public void method(final int parameter) {

The problem
In case 'finality' of parameters in the class doesn't match exactly 'finality' of parameters in the interface (in other words the class B marks some parameters final while the interface A doesn't or vice-versa) the class B won't inherit the docs from the interface A.

Expected result
'final' keyword used on parameters doesn't affect inheritance as it's not a part of method signature.
The class B should inherit the docs from the interface A even if there is a difference in 'finality' of parameters.
