I have developed a struts application (using jdk 1.4.2 + Tomcat 4.1 + Eclipse IDE).When I tried deploying the same application on the server which makes use of JDK 1.4.0, it is giving following error..

ERROR digester.Digester- Begin Event Threw Error
java.lang.illegalAccessError:class sun.reflect.GeneratedConstructorAccessor
cannot access its superclass sun.reflect.ConstructorAccessorImpl
at sun.misc.unSafe.defineClass(Native Method)......

I am not finding any resolution for the above mentioned problem..So pls help me in this regards

Thanks and Regards

Have you tried deleting all your class files and recompiling?

In your new deployment also are you using the eclipse ?And there are some significant changes in jdk1.4 and 1.4.2 so that might causing the problem.
