> I've got Log4J 1.1.3 JAR in my classpath.  Upon startup of my application 
> (actually a JUnit test case), I immediately get:
> java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError: 
> org.apache.commons.logging.LogConfigurationException: 
> java.lang.ClassCastException
> So I downloaded the Commons Logging 1.0 source and debugged.  The problem is in 
> org.apache.commons.logging.impl.LogFactoryImpl.guessConfig().
> Class proxyClass=findClassLoader().
>   loadClass( "org.apache.commons.logging.Log4jFactory" );
> The above loadClass call should be changed to:
> Class proxyClass=findClassLoader().
>   loadClass( "org.apache.commons.logging.impl.Log4jFactory" );
> However, after I make the above change I still get a ClassCastException, now 
> from org.apache.commons.logging.LogFactory.newFactory().  This exception  
> baffles me.  It happens at: 
> return (LogFactory) clazz.newInstance();
> So I modify newFactory() to do the newInstance() and the return in two steps 
> instead of one.
> Object result = clazz.newInstance();
> return (LogFactory)result;
> The exception occurs during the cast of result.  If I print result's class name 
> I get org.apache.commons.logging.impl.LogFactoryImpl.  But checking if result 
> is an instanceof org.apache.commons.logging.impl.LogFactoryImpl returns false.
> Object result = clazz.newInstance();
> System.out.println("Got Factory: " + result.getClass().getName());
> if (result instanceof LogFactory) {
>   System.out.println("result is a LogFactory");
> }
> if (result instanceof org.apache.commons.logging.impl.LogFactoryImpl) {
>   System.out.println("result is a LogFactoryImpl");
> }
> return (LogFactory) result;
> The code above just prints:
> Got Factory: org.apache.commons.logging.impl.LogFactoryImpl
> And then throws the ClassCastException.  I'm confused.
