    BooleanDataType in work item definition causes ClassCastException in the BPMN2 process editor

    osebelin Newbie

      Hi,

       

      I defined a work item definition that has a boolean parameter. Entering a value for that boolean parameter in the BPMN2 process editor plugin in Eclipse, causes a ClassCastException when selecting the work item for display in the Properties tab.

      This happens when I close the editor and reopen it. afterwards the selection of work items doesn't work properly.

       

      Stacktrace:

       

      java.lang.ClassCastException: java.lang.String cannot be cast to java.lang.Boolean

      The exception can be reproduced with the following simple example work item definition.

       

      import org.drools.process.core.datatype.impl.type.BooleanDataType;
      import org.drools.process.core.datatype.impl.type.StringDataType;
      import org.drools.process.core.datatype.impl.type.ObjectDataType;
      
      [
        [
          "name" : "MyTask", 
          "displayName" : "My Task",
          "parameters" : [ 
            "MyStringParam" : new StringDataType(), 
            "MyBoolParam" : new BooleanDataType() 
          ], 
          "results" : [ 
            "Result" : new ObjectDataType("java.util.Map") 
          ], 
          "displayName" : "My Task", 
        ]
      ]
      

       

      The editor field for the "MyBoolParam" is a text field. What do I have to do ta make this a boolean editor field (e.g. a drop down box like the Terminate parameter  in the End Event)?

      BTW, This occurs with IntegerDataTypes, too.

       

      Thank you for your help
