Description

This looks like an effort to override a common Java method, but it probably does not have the intended effect.

This method's name is similar to a common Java method name, but it is either spelled incorrectly or the argument list causes it to not override the intended method.

Risk Factors

TBD

Examples

The following method is meant to override Object.equals():

	public boolean equals(Object obj1, Object obj2) {
	  ...
	}

But since Object.equals() only takes a single argument, the method above is never called.
