Java Question

java.lang.ClassCastException: java.lang.String cannot be cast to [C

I'm using the following code to convert char[] to string, but it is throwing:


java.lang.ClassCastException: java.lang.String cannot be cast to [C


char[] charArray = user.getUserPassword();
String userPassword = String.valueOf(charArray);


Here
user.getUserPassword()
returns char[]. I also tried the following:

String userPassword = new String(charArray);


But it also throws the same exception. (I'm using java 8.)

The complete stack trace;

This is the UserDAOImpl class;

@Repository("userDAO")
public class UserDAOImpl implements UserDAO{

@Autowired
private SessionFactory sessionFactory;

@SuppressWarnings("unchecked")
@Override
public List<Object[]> login(String UserName, String UserPassword) {

Session session = sessionFactory.openSession();
String hql = HqlConstant.UserQuery;
Query query = session.createQuery(hql);
query.setParameter("UserName", UserName);
query.setParameter("UserPassword", UserPassword);
List<Object[]> list = query.list();

session.close();
return list;
}
}


This is the HQL query;

from UserModel um inner join um.userRoleModel where um.UserName = :UserName and um.UserPassword = :UserPassword

Answer

My theory on what happens:

You put a String into

 query.setParameter("UserPassword", UserPassword);

BUT

As you said, your userPassword property for your user Object is of type char[]

Now hibernate is a quite clever tool - it would recognize that object type for userPassword is char[] and then tries to set that into the generated query. But you passed a String.

Try this for once:

   query.setParameter("UserPassword", UserPassword.toCharArray());

in your login method.
