Subject [jira] [Created] (GROOVY-8938) Final field caching issues in inherited field.
Date Mon, 24 Dec 2018 19:52:00 GMT
Anton Pryamostanov created GROOVY-8938:

             Summary: Final field caching issues in inherited field.
                 Key: GROOVY-8938
             Project: Groovy
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: groovy-runtime
    Affects Versions: 2.5.4
            Reporter: Anton Pryamostanov

Note: **this seems to be a quite major issue**, kindly look at this one with emphasis.

Please see the below test case:
SubClass extends the SuperClass and overrides the field "inheritedField".
class OtherClass {
    String otherField
    OtherClass(String otherField) {
        this.otherField = otherField
    String toString() {
        return otherField
class SuperClass {
    final OtherClass inheritedField = new OtherClass("Super Class String")
class SubClass extends SuperClass {
    final OtherClass inheritedField = new OtherClass("Sub Class String")
SuperClass superClass = new SuperClass()
SubClass subClass = new SubClass()
assert subClass.inheritedField.toString() == "Sub Class String"

Actual result: assertion fails
Expected result: assertion should pass
Note: If "final" modifier is removed, assertion passes as expected.
This seems an issue with final field caching.
