Got exception on GAE: net.sourceforge.stripes.exception.StripesServletException: Could not instantiate specified Configuration. Class name specified was [net.sourceforge.stripes.config.RuntimeConfiguration]

Description

I'm trying Stripes on Google App Engine, but I see in the logs:

It looks like it is due to code in StripesFilter#init():

1 2 3 try { this.configuration = clazz.newInstance(); }

According GAE documentation, reflection is not allowed on "external" classes.

Is it possible to rework it without reflection??
