Subject [jira] [Comment Edited] (GROOVY-7883) Static compiler prefers private constructor over public if private matches better
Date Thu, 22 Sep 2016 20:55:20 GMT

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

I'm seeing the exact same problem. new AssertionError("any string") is valid java code calling
AssertionError(java.lang.Object). Groovy with @CompileStatic fails due to private constructor
AssertionError(java.lang.String).

As a workaround in the meantime, writing new AssertionError('any string' as Object) gets the
static compiler to actually compile the code.

> When constructing an AssertionError for example, it has a public constructor taking Object
and a private constructor taking String. The static compiler "chooses" the private constructor
over the public one and this results in a compile error.

> @groovy.transform.CompileStatic
> void doIt() {
>   //Cannot call private constructor for java.lang.AssertionError. However, it should
call AssertionError(Object)
>   throw new AssertionError("abc")
> }
> {code}
