    a JSF Validator cannot be cast to javax.faces.validator.Vali

    Alex Kachanov Newbie

      JBoss portal is using idenity portlet to register new users and edit profiles for existing users. I added a my own JSF validator to the identty portlet which when opened now throws the following exception:

      java.lang.ClassCastException: com.kachanov.test004.validators.MyValidator cannot be cast to javax.faces.validator.Validator
      at org.apache.myfaces.application.ApplicationImpl.createValidator(ApplicationImpl.java:613)

      The code of my validator is:

      package com.kachanov.test004.validators;

      import javax.faces.application.FacesMessage;
      import javax.faces.component.UIComponent;
      import javax.faces.context.FacesContext;
      import javax.faces.validator.Validator;
      import javax.faces.validator.ValidatorException;

      public class MyValidator implements Validator {

      public void validate(FacesContext arg0, UIComponent arg1, Object arg2) throws ValidatorException {

      System.out.println("testing this validator");


      So please thell me how can it bee that a class that implements Validator cannot be cast to javax.faces.validator.Validator??????

      Is in't it against basic design of Java language?

      I reported this to JIRA and got this answer:
      Not a bug. Please see classloading rules.
      It looks like your application embeds JSF libs, while they are already available in JBoss AS.
      But I have no idea where to look for solution
