Author of dp4j.jar, which lets you test access private methods in Java without writing any reflection API code. The necessary reflection code is injected by dp4j at compile-time. So you only write:

public void aTest(){
  PrivateConstructor pc = new PrivateConstructor("Hello!");

Instead of:

import java.lang.reflect.*;

public void aTest() throws IllegalAccessException, NoSuchMethodException
, InvocationTargetException, InstantiationException {
    Constructor pcInit = PrivateConstructor.class.getDeclaredConstructor(String.class);
    PrivateConstructor pc = (PrivateConstructor) pcInit.newInstance("Hello!");
