adding a FileValidator results in ClassCastException in parser.parseAndHelp(args)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: CLI-144
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLI-144
             Project: Commons CLI
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: CLI-2.x
    Affects Versions: 2.0
         Environment: Windows XP
            Reporter: David Biesack


When I add a FileValidator.getExistingFileInstance() to an Argument, I get a ClassCastException
when I parse args.

Below is a testcase invoke with

   java org.apache.commons.cli2.issues.CLI2Sample -classpath commons-cli-2.0-SNAPSHOT.jar
--file-name path-to-an-existing-file

Run it and you get:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ClassCastException: java.io.File cannot be cast to java.lang.String
	at org.apache.commons.cli2.validation.FileValidator.validate(FileValidator.java:122)
	at org.apache.commons.cli2.option.ArgumentImpl.validate(ArgumentImpl.java:250)
	at org.apache.commons.cli2.option.ParentImpl.validate(ParentImpl.java:123)
	at org.apache.commons.cli2.option.DefaultOption.validate(DefaultOption.java:175)
	at org.apache.commons.cli2.option.GroupImpl.validate(GroupImpl.java:264)
	at org.apache.commons.cli2.commandline.Parser.parse(Parser.java:105)
	at org.apache.commons.cli2.commandline.Parser.parseAndHelp(Parser.java:125)
	at org.apache.commons.cli2.issues.CLI2Sample.main(CLI2Sample.java:38)

Comment out the withValidator call and it runs with no exception. 

I also get a similar ClassCastException if I add a 

  .withValidator(NumberValidator.getIntegerInstance())

to another option/argument.

public class CLI2Sample

   public static void main(String[] args)
   {
      final DefaultOptionBuilder obuilder = new DefaultOptionBuilder();
      final ArgumentBuilder abuilder = new ArgumentBuilder();
      final GroupBuilder gbuilder = new GroupBuilder();
      DefaultOption fileNameOption = obuilder//
            .withShortName("f")//
            .withLongName("file-name")//
            .withRequired(true)//
            .withDescription("Name of dense data file containing NxM double matrix") //
            .withArgument(abuilder//
                  .withName("file-name")//
                  .withValidator(FileValidator.getExistingFileInstance())//
                  .create())//
            .create();
      Group options = gbuilder//
            .withName("options")//
            .withOption(fileNameOption)//
            .create();
      Parser parser = new Parser();
      parser.setHelpTrigger("--help");
      parser.setGroup(options);
      CommandLine cl = parser.parseAndHelp(args);
     }
}
