> Hi all,
> When using inaccessible constructor, compiler would output some confusing error message occasionally. These confusing error message is related to the constructor order. See [JDK-8255968](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8255968) for more information.
> This patch solves this bug, regardless of the construction order, compiler can always output expected message.
> Thank you for taking the time to review.
> Best Regards.
