Avoid excessive class coupling
A type or method is coupled with many other types.
This rule measures class coupling by counting the number of unique type references that a type or method contains.
Types and methods with a high degree of class coupling can be difficult to maintain. It is a good practice to have types and methods that exhibit low coupling and high cohesion.
To fix this violation, try to redesign the type or method to reduce the number of types to which it is coupled.
Exclude this warning when the type or method is still considered maintainable, despite its large number of dependencies on other types.
