      Description

      I've tried downloading the sources for tapestry5 and build it just for curiosity's sake. Everytime i try to build it with java6 I get the error below. Haven't any of you tried building it with java6 yet? It's been like that for all releases of java6 i've tried.

      Anyway, it's probably not intended to stay that way. Inserting a cast at the assignment in the reported line will make it compile, but I have no idea if it is correct.
