Description _ dcaoyuan 2008-07-02 17:50:47 UTC
I'm the author of Scala for NetBeans, I need to fetch the signature information special for Scala. Since Scala encodes
all these meta-information (for example: generic type info) in classfile's "ScalaSig" attribute, I have to fetch them
via AttribueMap#get(String).

I found AttribueMap#get(String) is "protected" method, and AttribueMap itself is also final class, is it possible to
open AttribueMap#get(String) as "public" method?

No problem -- go ahead and change the access to public in your own build so you can keep working, and I'll commit the
change after building and testing.
