We have an 'Access restriction' error we are getting from PDE which seems
invalid but I wanted to ask here before opening a bug. This is the
scenario:

1) plugin.x has two classes, pluginx.B and pluginx.internal.A. plugin.x is
exporting the package pluginx to the runtime, but it is not exporting the
internal package. This is what pluginx/internal/A.java looks like:

package pluginx.internal;

public class A {
public A() {
}

public void init() {
}
}

This is what pluginx/B.java looks like:

package pluginx;

import pluginx.internal.A;

public class B extends A {
public B() {
super();
}
}

2) Another plug-in, plugin.y has one class defined - pluginy.C. It imports
the 'pluginx' package from plugin.x, and looks like:

package pluginy;

import pluginx.B;

public class C extends B {
public C() {
super();
}

public void init() {
super.init();
}
}

When compiling this in the PDE tool, I get this error message:

Access restriction: The method init() from the type A is not accessible
due to restriction on required project
plugin.x C.java plugin.y/src/pluginy line 11 Java Problem

This is occurring because class 'B' is not overriding the 'init()' method
in class 'A', but I was expecting this to work without errors.

Should I open a bug?

Hi Phil,

Isn't PDE just reporting what the Java compiler tells it?
