Subject [jira] Updated: (BEEHIVE-1060) Control not being initialized when Inheriting from a parent page flow with a package protected control

Carlin Rogers updated BEEHIVE-1060:


updating the repro so that it includes the control (the control from netui tests that the
original repro referenced).

> When a page flow in another package inherits from a parent page flow that contains a
package protected @Control member variable, the control is not initialized correctly. When
the page flow call a method inherited from the parent and the method uses the package protected
control, an NPE will be thrown as the control will not be initialized.
> The work around is to make the control field protected rather than package protected.
> To reproduce create a page flow with a package protected control. Include a method in
the parent page flow that uses the control. Then, create a second page flow controller class
in another package that extends the parent and calls the inherited method that hits the control.
I will attach a zip file that will contain page flows to repro this issue. It can also be
used to test the fix.
> The problem seems to occur when JavaControlUtils.initJavaControls() is called and checks
for the set of annotated control fields for the inherited page flow controller class. The
routine, JavaControlUtils.getAccessibleControlFieldAnnotations() checks the fields of the
page flow controller and its ancestors to see if they match any of the fields found in our
generated annotation XML file. However, there will not be an <annotated-element> in
the processed annotations file of the derived page flow for the package protected control
in the parent page flow.
> I'm not sure yet whether the NetUI annotation processor should generate this <annotated-element>
or if the getAccessibleControlFieldAnnotations() method should be looking at the annotated
fields of parent classes. We can look at this for
