I have a code which is like this...
static Class class$com$documentum$web$form$control$databound$Datagrid; /* synthetic field */
What does this mean?
Thanks

From org.apache.bcel.classfile Class Synthetic

The JVM specification states "A class member that does not appear in the source code must be marked using a Synthetic attribute." It may appear in the ClassFile attribute table, a field_info table or a method_info table. This class is intended to be instantiated from the Attribute.readAttribute() method.

Note that not all VMs support synthetic attributes.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
