@TestVisible annotation(deployment error)

Hi i have a class and need a code coverage for that i wrote a test class bt it is not passing the private method in test class,so i kept @testvisible annotation to private method then it was passed,when i have done the deployment i got a error about @testvisible annoation ?can any one say how to rectify and deploy my code to production.?
Thanks in Advance,
What is the error you got? Can you post the message?

1. Is your prod up with Sprint'15 release as @testVisible is released in Spring'15?
2. Are you following code in below form:

Class with Private members:
public class TestVisibleExample {
    // Private member variable
    @TestVisible private static Integer recordNumber = 1;

    // Private method
    @TestVisible private static void updateRecord(String name) {
        // Do something

Test Class for unit testing private members/methods:
private class TestVisibleExampleTest {
    @isTest static void test1() {
        // Access private variable annotated with TestVisible
        Integer i = TestVisibleExample.recordNumber;
        System.assertEquals(1, i);

        // Access private method annotated with TestVisible
        // Perform some verification

Thanks for Reply sumit,
my prod org is not up to spring15 release and the above thing i have followed to acces private members,i got the error message as private methods are not accessible during deployment
Hi Akhil,
If you have added @testVisibele in your class private method ,So you have the right to edit your class .
So simpley edit your class update the versionn to latest version like 33 then save and deploy it will help.

If your org. is not setup for API 33 (Spring'15) then you need to wait until Salesforce releases it to your prod. Also, once prod gets Spring'15 release; you can update API version of class by editing it and push it to prod though changeset. -Sumit
@testvisible is released before winter 15 .So you can use chage your version to 30 ,it will work .
