    • Labels:
      None
    • Environment:
      tested on Mac OS X 10.4.10 with java version 1.5.0_07 and Fedora Core 5 (2.6.20-1.2320.fc5smp) with java version: 1.5.0_11

      Description

      The following code throws a java.lang.ClassCastException when run as a Groovy script, the same code compiled with groovyc and executed with java runs correctly.

      #prefsTest.groovy
      import java.util.prefs.*;
      def prefs = Preferences.userNodeForPackage(this.getClass());
      prefs.exportSubtree(System.out);
      #end prefsTest.groovy

      Test using the following:
      $ groovy prefsTest.groovy
      Caught: java.lang.ClassCastException: org.apache.xerces.jaxp.DocumentBuilderFactoryImpl
      at prefsTest.run(prefsTest.groovy:4)
      at prefsTest.main(prefsTest.groovy)
      $groovyc prefsTest.groovy
      $java -cp .:$GROOVY_HOME/embeddable/groovy-all-1.0.jar prefsTest
      WARNING: Prefs file removed in background /home/mkennedy/.java/.userPrefs/<unnamed>/prefs.xml
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><!DOCTYPE preferences SYSTEM "http://java.sun.com/dtd/preferences.dtd">
      <preferences EXTERNAL_XML_VERSION="1.0"><root type="user"><map/><node name="<unnamed>"><map/></node></root></preferences>

      I'm not sure what causes this, I discovered it when converting some java code to Groovy that imports an xml preferences file and I reduced the case to this to reproduce the behavior in a clean environment.

      I apologize for the trouble if this is some stupid error on my part that I'm just not seeing my way around.
