Subject [jira] [Created] (CXF-5406) ClassCastException in AtomPojoProvider when an Atom entry is returned with a media-type of application/atom+xml (no type parameter)

---------------------------------

             Summary: ClassCastException in AtomPojoProvider when an Atom entry is returned
with a media-type of application/atom+xml (no type parameter)
                 Key: CXF-5406
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CXF-5406
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: JAX-RS
    Affects Versions: 2.7.7
            Reporter: Dale Peakall


According to RFC5023 (section 12) a server SHOULD return a type parameter on the media-type
when returning an Atom Entry (e.g. application/atom+xml;type=entry).  However, it is not mandatory
that the server do this and RFC5023 states:
{quote}
If not specified, the type is assumed to be unspecified, requiring
   Atom processors to examine the root element to determine the type of
   Atom document.
{quote}
However, AtomPojoProvider simply assumes that when no type parameter is present that the content
is a feed and throws a ClassCastException when it ends up trying to cast the Entry returned
by Abdera into a Feed.

Also AtomPojoProvider's check on the type parameter value is case-senstitive where RFC5023
states that:
{quote}
Neither the parameter name nor its value are case sensitive.
{quote}
