------------------------------------------

this is standard for the past years yes. I am considering changing this because of JDK9 though

> Hi. I'm using Java (1.8) with Groovy (2.4.8) via GMavenPlus (although with the project I'm working on, we actually also programmatically compile Groovy code and add it to the class loader to mix them up). It seems however, in Groovy scripts/classes, package-private methods defined in a Java class can be called.
> For example, I have a Java class {{Person}} in package {{org.example.people}}, defined like so:
> {code:java}
> package org.example.people;
> public class Person {
>     private String name;
>     void setName(String name) {
>         this.name = name;
>     }
>     public String getName() {
>         return this.name;
>     }
> }
> {code}
> And I have a Groovy class {{Main}} in package {{org.example}}:
> {code:java}
> package org.example
> import groovy.transform.CompileStatic
> import org.example.people.Person
> class Main {
>     static void main(String[] args) {
>         Person person = new Person()
>         person.setName('Bob') // Shouldn't be call-able since they belong to different packages.
>         println person.getName() // Prints 'Bob' to the console.
>     }
> }
> {code}
> Is this standard? Using {{\@CompileStatic}}, though, throws an {{IllegalAccessException}}.
