I had the strangest problem today - I tried to instantiate a class with a constructor and got an InstantiationError:

My application was as follows:
public class A {
	public void method(){
		new D();

public class B{
	public asbtract static class C<M, V> {
		public static class D {

As soon as I removed the static from C it worked but I also had to implement a method in C. Is it a bug in the compiler error that I got no warning in the java and an the error in run time?

Hm, when I turn your example into something that compiles and runs, there is no InstantiationError.
OTOH, if you can provide a complete example that demonstrates the InstantiationError, please file a bug at
when doing so, please also specify the exact version of JDT.
