class: MagicAccessorImpl [javadoc | source]

MagicAccessorImpl (named for parity with FieldAccessorImpl and others, not because it actually implements an interface) is a marker class in the hierarchy. All subclasses of this class are "magically" granted access by the VM to otherwise inaccessible fields and methods of other classes. It is used to hold the code for dynamically-generated FieldAccessorImpl and MethodAccessorImpl subclasses. (Use of the word "unsafe" was avoided in this class's name to avoid confusion with sun.misc.Unsafe .)

The bug fix for 4486457 also necessitated disabling verification for this class and all subclasses, as opposed to just SerializationConstructorAccessorImpl and subclasses, to avoid having to indicate to the VM which of these dynamically-generated stub classes were known to be able to pass the verifier.

Do not change the name of this class without also changing the VM's code.
