I have a jython script on AIX (with IBM JDK) that parses a HashMap and prints its keys and values.
The HashMap signature is HashMap<String,String> and I want to print both the keys and values in a loop.
I get an iterator over the keys in this hashmap but when I try to check for more elements, I get the following exception -

java.lang.IllegalAccessException: java.lang.IllegalAccessException: Class org.python.core.PyReflectedFunction can not access a member of class java.util.HashMap$AbstractMapIterator with modifiers "public"
       at sun.reflect.Reflection.ensureMemberAccess(
       at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(

Here is how my script looks like (the same script works fine on Linux)

      keys = map.keySet()
      iter = keys.iterator()
      while (iter.hasNext() == 1): // This is the line that throws the exception
            keys =

Any suggestions? If there's another way to print keys/values of the hashmap that works on AIX, please let me know.

What version of the IBM JDK is this? It's rather odd that we can't access something with a "public" modifier.
