      Description



      Name: tb29552 Date: 08/12/97


      Reported by:
      company - Sybase Waterloo , email - ###@###.###

      class bug52 {
          private String foo() {
              return null;
          }
      };

      The classfile generated for this source code
      doesn't have the final attribute set for
      method bug52.foo. This is incorrect according
      to the JLS 8.4.3.3 where it states that a
      private method is implicitly final.
