protobuf 2.4.1 and ObjectInspector
I am trying to use the ReflectionStructObjectInspector to extract fields
from a protobuf generated from 2.4.1 compiler. I am seeing that reflections
fails to extract fields out of the generated protobuf class. Specifically,
this code snippet:

public static Field[] getDeclaredNonStaticFields(Class<?> c) {

    Field[] f = c.getDeclaredFields();    // This returns back the correct
number of fields

    ArrayList<Field> af = new ArrayList<Field>();

    for (int i = 0; i < f.length; ++i) {

      *//* *The logic here falls flat as it is looking only for the
non-static fields and all generated fields *

*     // seem to be static*

      if (!Modifier.isStatic(f[i].getModifiers())) {




    Field[] r = new Field[af.size()];

    for (int i = 0; i < af.size(); ++i) {

      r[i] = af.get(i);


    return r;


This causes the whole ObjectInspector to fail. Has anyone else seen this
issue too?
