[drlvm] ClassCastException is thrown with low detail

                 Key: HARMONY-4515
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-4515
             Project: Harmony
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: DRLVM
            Reporter: Vasily Zakharov

DRLVM, when throws ClassCastException, provides no detail about what were the class being
cast and the target for the cast. This makes localizing problems in applications more difficult.

RI provides information only on the class being cast, and IBM VME provides information on

This situation is not certainly a bug, it may be considered an Improvement or Non-bug difference
from RI. However I think DRLVM should better follow the IBM VME behavior, or, at least, RI
behavior, to improve its usability.

Test to reproduce the problem:

public class Test {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        try {
            Class c = (Class) (Object) "test";
        } catch (Throwable e) {

Output on RI:

java.lang.ClassCastException: java.lang.String
        at Test.main(Test.java:4)

Harmony/IBM VME:

java.lang.ClassCastException: java.lang.String incompatible with java.lang.Class
        at Test.main(Test.java:4)


        at Test.main(Test.java:4)
