Subject Re: Jakarta Commons:Digester - Getting IllegalAccessException
Date Tue, 01 Jul 2003 13:31:18 GMT
Hi ,
I have a bean called RulesConfig which has getters/setters for properties "appName" and "precedenceClass".This
class has "default" access.
Before parsing,I create an object of this bean and push it onto the digester's stack.Then
I call the rule
digester.setProperties matching a pattern, which has to call the setters of appName and precedenceClass.
But,the call to "setAppName" or "setPrecedenceClass" gives the IllegalAccessException.
When I make the class "public", I am not getting this exception.

Any ideas on why I am getting this behaviour ?
