    ClassCastException when trying to cast object selected from

    M K Newbie

      Hello,

      I've got two EARs: one SEAM Project using jBPM and a second EJB Project (lets call it JBPMContextProvider) which should be able to connect to the database (Hypersonic) where all the task information of JBPM is stored.

      My problem is, when I retrieve a TaskInstance-Object in JBPMContextProvider from the database, I get a ClassCastException.

      The setup:
      - each of the EARs has a reference of the jbpm-jpdl.jar
      - the SEAM Project binds the SessionFactory to java:/projectSessionFactory
      - JBPMContextProvider makes an JNDI lookup to retrieve a SessionFactory object
      - to select the TaskInstances from the database, I use a named query set up in the original JBPM hibernate.cfg.xml-file and try to iterate through the result set - there the ClassCastException happens:

      InitialContext ctx;
      ctx = new InitialContext();
      SessionFactory sessionFactory = (SessionFactory) ctx.lookup(JNDI);
      sessionFactory.openSession();
      
      Session session = sessionFactory.getCurrentSession();
      Transaction tx = session.beginTransaction(); //works fine
      
      Query query2 = session.getNamedQuery("TaskMgmtSession.findTaskInstancesByActorId");
      query2.setString("actorId", actorId);
      result = query2.list();
      
      for (Iterator iter = result.iterator(); iter.hasNext();) {
       TaskInstance ti = (TaskInstance) iter.next(); //CastException
       System.out.println("*** ActorId is: "+ti.getActorId()+" ***");
      }

      This brought me already to the idea to compare the ClassLoaders which might be a reason, but I don't know how to solve.

      System.out.println(result.get(0).getClass().toString());
      System.out.println(result.get(0).getClass().getClassLoader().toString());
      System.out.println(new TaskInstance().getClass().getClassLoader().toString());
      System.out.println(result.get(0).getClass().getClassLoader().equals(new TaskInstance().getClass().getClassLoader()));
      


      This code delivers to STDOUT:

      org.jboss.mx.loading.UnifiedClassLoader3@79b43f{ url=file:/C:/jboss-4.2.2.GA/server/default/tmp/deploy/tmp26274seam_project.ear ,addedOrder=45}
      org.jboss.mx.loading.UnifiedClassLoader3@3b5587{ url=file:/C:/jboss-4.2.2.GA/server/default/tmp/deploy/tmp26273JBPMContextProviderEAR.ear ,addedOrder=44}
      false
      


      Thanks for any hints!
