Looks like something we should fix though. Probably just needs a case distinction in the TypeExtractor.

@Andrew, can you post the stack trace into the me linked issue?

We'll try to get at it until the next release...

Hi,

This is not very obvious and looks like a bug.

I have a lambda expression to get key from objects in stream:

This works:
stream.keyBy(value -> value.getId())

This does not:
stream.keyBy(myClass::getId)

Exception:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: -1

Can someone confirm this? or is there a better way to do it?


Thanks!


Andrew
