Description GustavoSoares 2011-09-05 02:58:57 UTC
1. Create the classes:
package p2;
public class C {
  protected long k(){
    return 0;
  }
}
package p1;
public class B extends A {
}
package p1;
import p2.*;
public class A extends C {
  protected long k(){
    return 1;
  }
  public long m(){
    return this.k();
  }
}
2. apply the rename class refactoring to rename B to C
package p2;
public class C {
  protected long k(){
    return 0;
  }
}
package p1;
public class C extends A {
}
package p1;
import p2.*;
public class A extends C {
  protected long k(){
    return 1;
  }
  public long m(){
    return this.k();
  }
}
3. The resulting program does not compile
