    ClassCastException $Proxy0 from within Java Web Start

    kaiho Newbie

      Hi,

      I'm using JBoss 4.0.4 and Java 5 for writing an EJB 3-Client in Eclipse RCP 3.2.1, that is deployed via Java Web Start. I've got two plugins/JARs (1. RCP client/EJB remote interfaces and 2. JBoss/JEE libraries), that are bundled as a feature. When starting the Eclipse product everything is fine. But when the product is run via Web Start, there is a problem. Although the client starts, an exception is thrown when trying to communicate with an EJB. The last line of this code snippet

      javax.naming.Context c = new javax.naming.InitialContext();
      Object temp = c.lookup("ArtikelverwaltungBean/remote");
      avr = (ArtikelverwaltungRemote) temp;
      //avr = (ArtikelverwaltungRemote) PortableRemoteObject.narrow(temp, ArtikelverwaltungRemote.class);

      throws this exception
      java.lang.ClassCastException: $Proxy0

      and it makes no difference wheter I narrow the returned object or not.

      In the JBoss forums can be read that this error (ClassCastException $Proxy0) is most likely a class loading problem. "The cast will only work if you are casting to a class/interface loaded with the same classloader." (http://www.jboss.com/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=45871)

      I'm not familiar with the interna of Web Start. Does anybody has an idea to overcome this problem?

      By the way, this "trick" does not work:
      Thread.currentThread().setContextClassLoader(ArtikelverwaltungRemote.class.getClassLoader());


      Thank you for your help!
      Kai
