NetBeans cant change modifier of a method.

I went through the help file about changing the generated code to a public modifier. I went through the refractor process several times, but it wont change the modifier to a public access modifier. Anyone have any ideas why its not responding?

Thanks a lot for the help

I took a closer look at it says that it is a read only method and can not be refractored... what can I do to change this? I need to create a JUnit test case, but the private access modifier it was given is preventing this.

Can't you just edit it?

I wish... When using the NetBeans GUI builder, it restricts how you can modify the source code. You have to go through special channels to make adjustments. I guess they do this keep errors down.

Then you'll have to check to see if the templates it uses can be modified, or change how you're testing it.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
