Java Question

Hibernate gives a strange ClassCast exception (using Transformers)

This code:

@Override
public List<FactCodeDto> getAllFactsWithoutParentsAsFactDto() {
String completeQuery = FactCodeQueries.SELECT_DTO_FROM_FACT_WITH_NO_PARENTS;
Query query = createHibernateQueryForUnmappedTypeFactDto(completeQuery);

List<FactCodeDto> factDtoList = query.list(); //line 133
return factDtoList;
}


calling this method:

private Query createHibernateQueryForUnmappedTypeFactDto(String sqlQuery) throws HibernateException {
return FactCodeQueries.addScalars(createSQLQuery(sqlQuery)).setResultTransformer(Transformers.aliasToBean(FactCodeDto.class));
}


gives me a ClassCastException -> part of the trace:

Caused by: java.lang.ClassCastException: be.fgov.just.cjr.dto.FactCodeDto cannot be cast to java.util.Map

Which is pretty strange because, indeed, if you look up the source code of Hibernate it tries to do this:

@Override
@SuppressWarnings("unchecked")
public void set(Object target, Object value, SessionFactoryImplementor factory) {
( (Map) target ).put( propertyName, value ); //line 102
}


Which doesn't make any sense...

target is of type Class and this code tries to cast it to Map,

why does it try to do that???

any pointers are more than welcome...

I'm using Hibernate 5 (and am upgrading from 3)...

edit: I also use Spring (4.2.1.RELEASE; also upgrading) which calls these methods upon deploy, any debugging pointers are most welcome as well...

edit 2: (the whole FactCodeDto class, as requested)

Answer

In the end it wasn't so hard to find a solution,

I just created my own (custom) ResultTransformer and specified that in the setResultTransformer method:

private Query createHibernateQueryForUnmappedTypeFactDto(String sqlQuery) throws HibernateException {
    return FactCodeQueries.addScalars(createSQLQuery(sqlQuery)).setResultTransformer(new FactCodeDtoResultTransformer());
    //return FactCodeQueries.addScalars(createSQLQuery(sqlQuery)).setResultTransformer(Transformers.aliasToBean(FactCodeDto.class));
}

the code of the custom result transformer:

package be.fgov.just.cjr.dao.factcode;

import be.fgov.just.cjr.dto.FactCodeDto;

import java.util.Date;
import java.util.List;

/**
 * Created by a162299 on 3-11-2015.
 */
public class FactCodeDtoResultTransformer implements org.hibernate.transform.ResultTransformer {

    @Override
    public Object transformTuple(Object[] objects, String[] strings) {

        FactCodeDto result = new FactCodeDto();

        for (int i = 0; i < objects.length; i++) {
            setField(result, strings[i], objects[i]);
        }

        return result;
    }

    private void setField(FactCodeDto result, String string, Object object) {

        if (string.equalsIgnoreCase("cdFact")) {
            result.setCdFact((String) object);
        } else if (string.equalsIgnoreCase("cdFactSuffix")) {
            result.setCdFactSuffix((String) object);
        } else if (string.equalsIgnoreCase("isSupplementCode")) {
            result.setIsSupplementCode((Boolean) object);
        } else if (string.equalsIgnoreCase("isTitleCode")) {
            result.setIsTitleCode((Boolean) object);
        } else if (string.equalsIgnoreCase("mustBeFollowed")) {
            result.setMustBeFollowed((Boolean) object);
        } else if (string.equalsIgnoreCase("activeFrom")) {
            result.setActiveFrom((Date) object);
        } else if (string.equalsIgnoreCase("activeTo")) {
            result.setActiveTo((Date) object);
        } else if (string.equalsIgnoreCase("descFr")) {
            result.setDescFr((String) object);
        } else if (string.equalsIgnoreCase("descNl")) {
            result.setDescNl((String) object);
        } else if (string.equalsIgnoreCase("descDe")) {
            result.setDescDe((String) object);
        } else if (string.equalsIgnoreCase("type")) {
            result.setType((String) object);
        } else if (string.equalsIgnoreCase("idFact")) {
            result.setIdFact((Long) object);
        } else if (string.equalsIgnoreCase("idParent")) {
            result.setIdParent((Long) object);
        } else if (string.equalsIgnoreCase("isCode")) {
            result.setIsCode((Boolean) object);
        } else {
            throw new RuntimeException("unknown field");
        }

    }

    @Override
    public List transformList(List list) {
        return list;
    }
}

in hibernate 3 you could set Aliasses to queries but you can't do that anymore in hibernate 5 (correct me if I'm wrong) hence the aliasToBean is something you only can use when actually using aliasses; which I didn't, hence the exception.
