Java Question

java.lang.ClassCastException: com.sun.proxy.$Proxy47 cannot be cast to

I am running a test under Arquillian OSGi with this code:

An annotation:

@Target(ElementType.FIELD)
@Retention(RetentionPolicy.RUNTIME)
public @interface Size {
int min() default 0;

int max() default 2147483647;
}


This class

public class FooEntity {
@Size(min = 0, max = 100)
public int number;

public int getNumber() {
return number;
}

public void setNumber(int number) {
this.number = number;
}
}


And a validation method somewhere else:

@Override
public List<String> validateEntity(Object entity) throws IllegalAccessException {
List<String> list = new ArrayList<>();
for(Field field : entity.getClass().getDeclaredFields()) {
for (Annotation annotation : field.getDeclaredAnnotations()) {
if (annotation.annotationType().getName().equals(Size.class.getName())) {
Size size = (Size) annotation; // --> Throws 'ClassCastException' exception!!
int value = field.getInt(entity);
if (value < size.min() || value > size.max())
list.add("Error Message: Invalid size.");
}
}
}
return list;
}


When I debug this part of the code, I place this same line in the 'watch' window of the IDE and it shows the code is correct, I mean, it returns
annotation
as
Size
type, but during run-time the code just breaks. Does anybody knows why is this cast not working? And why is this annotation working under a Proxy class?

Here is the StackTrace of the exception:

java.lang.ClassCastException: com.sun.proxy.$Proxy47 cannot be cast to persistence.ext.annotation.Size

Answer

Why is this cast not working?

I suspect, that the real reason for your problems is that you have (somehow) managed to get copies of the Size interface loaded; i.e. in different classloaders. The class names appear to be the same, but if you check the classloaders (getClass().getClassLoader()), I suspect that you will find they are different.
