> 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 both.
> 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) {
>             e.printStackTrace();
>         }
>     }
> }
> 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)
> Harmony/DRLVM:
> java.lang.ClassCastException
>         at Test.main(Test.java:4)
