Subject [jira] Created: (COCOON-1790) VerifyException "Attempt to split long or double on the stack" in javaflow

VerifyException "Attempt to split long or double on the stack" in javaflow

         Key: COCOON-1790
     Project: Cocoon
        Type: Bug
  Components: Blocks: Java Flow  
    Versions: 2.1.9-dev (current SVN)    
    Reporter: Simone Gianni

When writing code like this :

long time = System.currentTimeMillis();
Date date = new Date(time);

the given exception is thrown. It's a validation exception.  This happens when a long (maybe
also a double?) is used in a constructor (not in a function call). The following code is a
workaround :

Date date = new Date();

but can be used only when the object we are instantiating have a getter as an alternative
to the constructor parameter.

I'm having this problem with a fresh (yesterday) checkout of cocoon 2.1.X branch. Don't know
yet if this apply to other versions of cocoon. I'm using Blackdown-1.4.2-02 on a 2.6.12-gentoo-r6
linux machine.

Googling around it seems that this exception is raised when the data type in a pop2 JVM instruction
is not correct. I think this is one of the side-effects of the javaflow BCEL manipulations,
but I'm not skilled enought on BCEL and similar stuff to even think of a possible solution.

The exception is raised loading the javaflow class, so it will prevent the entire flow (and
not only the affected method) to be used. Also, the exception will just tell you that the
class is invalid, and not point you to the place in code where this long is used in a constructor,
so you'll have to spot it by hand. 

I can produce a test case to try to narrow it down, but the given 3 lines of code are enought
to produce the error in my javaflows.
