I recently switched our app from our own startup code to using start.jar. Now we're getting an error in our webapp:
java.lang.IllegalAccessException: com.mycompany.MySuperClass can not access a member of class com.mycompany.MySubClass with modifiers "protected"
MySuperClass is an odd beast. It exists in a jar in the main /lib directory. It contains a method that uses reflection to examine protected members of subclasses. MySubClass exists in the webapp.
MySuperClass and MySubClass are both in the same package, but in different jars.
I do not get this error when I use our own Jetty startup code, only with start.jar. My guess is that start.jar sets up classloaders in a way that prevents access, but that's just a guess.
Anyone know how to fix this?
