Subject [jira] [Commented] (LANG-965) FieldUtils methods leak accessible flags
Date Mon, 20 Oct 2014 09:23:33 GMT


Benedikt Ritter commented on LANG-965:

The problem is with the getField method, which is used by read/writeField methods. When calling
getField with forceAccess = true, the user of the method does not know whether accessibility
of the Field has been changed. Simply calling setAccessible(false) doesn't work because the
field may have been accessible before. So the user cannot restore the accessibility to it's
initial state. That is why I was think of some kind of callback, so that FieldUtils can restore
accessibility after handing the field to the user.

> When various FieldUtils methods are called the accessible is set to true but never reset
to false. This is side-effect should be cleaned up.
> This makes a mess of the object model which represents the class meta data.
