Affects Version/s: 1.0.2
Fix Version/s: None
I just got an error message which said:-
Exception in thread "main" <openjpa-1.0.2-r420667:627158 nonfatal general
error> org.apache.openjpa.persistence.PersistenceException: java.util.Date
cannot be cast to java.util.Collection
In this (and the accompanying stack trace) there is no indication which Date
object cannot be cast to a Collection. Yes from the stack trace I know that
I was trying to persist a particular root object, but I have no idea which
class and field this error refers to. Simply adding the class and field would
make debugging so much easier.
Then once I know which Date field it might be, I can start to try to work out
why it wanted to cast it to a collection. Presumably this was it was trying
to map this to a particular table, or to a set of objects of a given type, and
again it would be useful to know what application object as opposed to raw
java class it was trying to map to.
