    Rich Faces Tree Cast Problem.

    Julia R Newbie


      I try to run example http://livedemo.exadel.com/richfaces-demo/richfaces/tree.jsf?tab=model&cid=2340784

      I get following error.

      java.lang.ClassCastException: org.richfaces.model.TreeNodeImpl cannot be cast to javax.swing.tree.TreeNode

      I have no idea why it tryes to cast to javax.swing.tree.
      I use jboss 4.2.3 and rich faces 3.3.1.GA

      Can anyone help me?

      P.S. Sorry. I am a newbie and if you need some extra information please let me know

              This should work ok.

                I guess, it should be a working example. I just have no idea why it needs javax.swing. Do you have any guesses where a problem could be?

                Swing i use nowhere.

                  This can be classloader issue. Do you use EAR or WAR layout?

                    Check that only richfaces-api is present in EAR, richfaces-impl and richfaces-ui should be in WAR.

                      Thanks! You are right. I aslo thought that the problem was about classloaders but i wouldn't find it by myself.
