I have two classes CientGui and Test. ClientGui is a abstract and is in package and then the other class Test is public and extends ClientGui and is in package  Problem Im getting is that when I try to reference a variable in Test from class ClientGui, I get Field is not visible but my editor when I go to declaration.. goes directly to ClientGui and shows me it.  If I change the ClientGui class from a abstract to public... everthing works fine.  The ClientGui class is the base of everything and Im worried about changing the "behavior" from a abstract class to a public class due to the ramifications since it used by gobs of our existing code.  Question is... How do I get it visible the way it stands today as a abstract class to the the Test Class?

 public class Test extends ClientGui {
*      This is an abstract class serving as a super class for single table manipulations.
public abstract class ClientGui
      extends JPanel
      implements ActionListener, ArcTable {
