Subject [jira] Updated: (WW-1495) Some actions that use Generics make OGNL throw ClassCastException
Date Mon, 12 Mar 2007 19:27:51 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/struts/browse/WW-1495?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Ted Husted updated WW-1495:
---------------------------

            Flags:   (was: [Patch])
    Fix Version/s:     (was: 2.0.7)
                   2.0.8

Deflagging this as a patch, since the reporter says that the suggestions should be reviewed
by someone who understands OGNL (which would not be me).

> When the action class extends a class that uses generics (e.g. public class ManageEmployeeAction
extends CrudAction<Employee, Long> { }) and data is sent from the web page (using Struts
Forms built by the tag library) to be set in a property from the class that is inherited from
the superclass and defined as generic (e.g., protected I[] ids;), OGNL cannot determine the
type of the property, falls back to String[] and throws a ClassCastException.
> This issue has been further discussed in the forum: http://forums.opensymphony.com/thread.jspa?threadID=48752.
Attachments are provided to illustrate the issue and propose a starting point for the fix.
However, it should NOT be considered a patch, since the creator of this "hack" doesn't have
enough knowledge of OGNL and Generics to assure its general correctness.
