    Adding interface to an existing class

    Mohammad Norouzi Novice

      Hi

       

      I have a class which is in legacy system and we cannot change the class. I need to create a java proxy for that class but this is a class without interface. So I have created an interface and write the following code to add this interface to that class at runtime but the class.getInterfaces() method still returns no interface!

       

      --

      public class Main {

         

       

         

          public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {

              //@SuppressWarnings("rawtypes")

              createInterface();

              AnAbstractClass instance = new AClassFromAbstract();//instance.getClass().getInterfaces()

              Object proxy = Proxy.newProxyInstance(ProxyIntAnAbstractClass.class.getClassLoader(),

                      new Class[] {ProxyIntAnAbstractClass.class},

                      new MyInvocationHandler(instance));

       

              ProxyIntAnAbstractClass instance2 = (ProxyIntAnAbstractClass) proxy;

              instance2.doSomething();

              instance2.doSomethingElse();

          }

         

          public static Class createInterface() throws Exception{

              ClassPool pool = ClassPool.getDefault();

              ClassPath cp = new ClassClassPath(AnAbstractClass.class);

              pool.insertClassPath(cp);

              pool.importPackage("com.macquarie.test.proxy");

             

              CtClass myinterface = pool.get("com.mmm.test.proxy.ProxyIntAnAbstractClass");

             

       

              CtClass tclass = pool.getCtClass("com.mmm.test.proxy.AnAbstractClass");

              tclass.setInterfaces(new CtClass[] {myinterface});

              tclass.rebuildClassFile();

              tclass.detach();

              return myinterface.toClass();

         

         

          }

      }

       

      --

       

      When I execute this code, since the ProxyIntAnAbstractClass is not interface of AnAbstractClass, InvocationHandler complains that the object is not an instance of declaring class

       

      Can you please help me on this?
