# Organize Imports

# Description

Organizes the imports of a Java class. Removes unused imports and applies an alphanumeric order.

# Benefits

Imports that are not used are optimized away by the compiler. Regardless, they clutter up the file and might lead to confusion. Removing unused imports and applying alphanumeric order improves readability and maintainability.
