Subject [jira] Updated: (VFS-337) AbstractFileObject ctor accepts FileName as a parameter, but actually requires AbstractFileName
Date Thu, 25 Nov 2010 20:51:13 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VFS-337?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Sebb updated VFS-337:
---------------------

    Description: 
The AbstractFileObject constructor accepts FileName as a parameter, but actually requires
an AbstractFileName.
Anything else will generate a ClassCastException.

The reason for the cast is to allow access to the package-protected method void AbstractFileName#setType(FileType
type)

Many of the AbstractFileObject methods rely on being able to invoke the setType method, so
perhaps the parameter should be changed accordingly?
This will change the API and require changes to subclasses.

I'll add Javadoc to document the restriction.
