Subject classcast exception between build xmls
Date Tue, 11 Jul 2006 10:29:53 GMT
Hi All,

I have a problem with class casting. Here is the scenario -

I have an ant custom task say "mycustomA". Inside the execute method, I 
create a custom obj say "customobj" of a user-defined type. I store the 
"customobj" in the project reference using 

I using mycustomA in a "build.xml". After invoking the task mycustomA I 
use ant task <ant> with inheritRefs=true to call another 
"buildsecond.xml"  Inside buildsecond.xml, I use a custom task say 
"mycustomB" which tries to get the reference of the customobj using the 
method getProject().getReference("key"). When I try to cast to the 
"customobj" type I get a classcast exception.

But customobj.getClass().getName() prints the exact type of customobj. 
But the instance of operator fails saying false. Is this any issue with 
class loader ?

I use java 1.5.0_06. What I am missing ?

Thank you,

Best regards
