[java] UnnecessaryFullyQualifiedName: false positive for nested inner class defining method with same name as static import #1316

Affects PMD Version: PMD 6.5.0 running using maven plug-in 3.10.0 (also present in version 6.6.0).

Rule: UnnecessaryFullyQualifiedName (category/java/codestyle.xml/UnnecessaryFullyQualifiedName)

The rule correctly identifies that a static import is defined for sessionStatusChanged. The implementation does not identify that the method the find is used in is defined as sessionStatusChanged as well. Therefore, calling the static import name would result in a recursive method call instead of a reference to the static import. It is necessary to refer to the method call by class name.

Code Sample demonstrating the issue:

private final OtrEngineListener slaveSessionsListener = new OtrEngineListener() {

    // FIXME temporarily suppress warning due to false-positive in use of existing static import.
    public void sessionStatusChanged(@Nonnull final SessionID sessionID, @Nonnull final InstanceTag receiver) {
        OtrEngineListenerUtil.sessionStatusChanged(duplicate(listeners), sessionID, receiver);

    // ...
