Subject Re: IllegalAccessError calling package private methods
Date Wed, 19 Nov 2003 19:44:38 GMT
Some suggested that the problem might have been caused by different
class loaders.  So I put some debug statements in to find out.

At the same time I upgraded from jboss 3.2.1 to 3.2.2.

Low and behold no more error! Hurray!  I guess I could go back to the old version
and check but time is a wasting.

Thanks for all the advice,

Subject: IllegalAccessError calling package private methods

Hi All,
  I'm getting the following error when running my cactus tests:
java.lang.IllegalAccessError: tried to access method 
com.digitalreasoning.kafe.host.Host.getKafeMBeanServer() from class
com.digitalreasoning.kafe.host.HostObjectFactoryTest at com.digitalreasoning.kafe.host.HostObjectFactoryTest.testDomainName(HostObjectFactoryTest.java:44)

The method getKafeMBeanServer() is a package private method in Host.
     * Returns the MBeanServer created by this Host.
     * Keeping this package private for testing since the Host should provide
     * any fuctionality that my be derived from the MBeanServer
     * @return
    MBeanServer getKafeMBeanServer(){
        return kafeMbeanServer_;

HostObjectFactoryTest is in the same package as you can tell.  The method  testDomainName()
     * Make sure that the MBeanServer is created with the expected
     * DomainName.
    public void testDomainName(){
        Host host = HostObjectFactory.createHost();
        MBeanServer server = host.getKafeMBeanServer();
        assertTrue("Asserting True that "+Host.DOMAIN + " == "+ server.getDefaultDomain(),

Any ideas why I'm getting the IllegalAccessError?
