Hi there,

your fix looks fine, thank you! If you want to contribute would you mind adding some tests to test this case to the ReflectionTester? Once that is done, I can add your fix to the aop source tree. Otherwise it will take a bit longer since I then need to write the tests :-) I think what you have done will also affect private constructors being called by reflection, since they also get a wrapper method, so if you really want to help it would be great if you could look at that too. Funnily enough the ReflectionAspect was the first thing I worked on when I started contributing to JBoss AOP :-)

To check out aop source
svn co http://anonsvn.jboss.org/repos/jbossas/projects/aop/trunk/ jboss-aop

The reflection test lives under jboss-aop/aop/src/main/org/jboss/aop/reflection/

And it is configured under

Let me know if you need more info about how to build/run the tests?

BTW things like 
will not work if run under a security manager, and the aop tests are being run with a security manager enabled.

Take a look at the ReflectionAspect.SecurityAction class, which currently wraps calls to Class.getDeclaredFields() etc. when called with and without a security manager.
