Subject Re: [cglib-devel] IllegalAccessError in fastclass
Date Wed, 15 Feb 2006 02:16:24 GMT
Weird... I did not notice that was package
private.  It makes a little sense that is is package private because
you only expect users to extend from one of its direct subclasses for
MDB or a SB.

Thanks for taking a look :-)

I've added definitions for ejbRemove() which call super.ejbRemove() to
get around this.  Do you know when the fix will make it into a CGLIB
release that would be usable by G?
