Subject [jira] [Commented] (LANG-965) FieldUtils methods leak accessible flags
Date Thu, 28 Aug 2014 06:19:57 GMT


Benedikt Ritter commented on LANG-965:

Hello André,

yes I see, it's the continue statement in line 112 that breaks stuff. Making this dependend
upon forceAccess doesn't make sense to me. Feel free to refactor this, but keep in mind: Method
signatures must not be changed to preserve backwards compatibility. Instead we have to deprecate
methods if we can't fix them internally and then provide an alternative implementation (with
a different signature).

to false. This is side-effect should be cleaned up.
