Michael Berkowitz updated CXF-2720:


> MapType doesn't deserialize subclass instances

>             Project: CXF
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Aegis Databinding
>    Affects Versions: 2.2.6
>         Environment: All
>            Reporter: Michael Berkowitz

> Given an object of type {{Map<TKey, TValue>}}, where, say, {{TValue}} is a base
class extended by {{TValuePrime}}, when a serialized instance contains a value of type {{TValuePrime}},
*MapType* will try to deserialize it as a {{TValue}}, ignoring the fact that it's really an
instance of {{TValuePrime}}. In many cases this will throw an exception when trying to _set_
a member that exists only in {{TValuePrime}}.   (We have observed this for the value class,
but it should be true of the key class as well).
> We have fixed this - as far as we can tell - by swiping code from *ArrayType*, which
handles these things correctly.  We're attaching our new version of *MapType.readObject()*.
> Lacking a deep understand of the Aegis code, we did this by intuition and trial-and-error,
so it may be inefficient or even technically incorrect, but so far it works for us.  Please
get this fix, or its functional equivalent, into the codebase.
> Thanks in advance.
