Subject [jira] [Commented] (LANG-965) FieldUtils methods leak accessible flags
Date Wed, 22 Oct 2014 08:08:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-965?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14179709#comment-14179709
] 

Joerg Schaible commented on LANG-965:
-------------------------------------

Why do we care so much about the original state? The critical point is setting the accessible,
because of a SecurityManager. Therefore it should only be called if necessary. However, since
the JDK methods return always a new instance of Field (or Method or Constructor), the state
is modified for this particular instance only.

> 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.
