Subject [jira] Commented: (OPENJPA-1642) ClassCastException caused when using property 'openjpa.Sequence'
Date Fri, 30 Apr 2010 19:26:53 GMT


Michael Dick commented on OPENJPA-1642:

Pinaki's suggestion to enhance at build time (
should work around the problem. It's not very obvious why that's required. 

The problem is that the PCAgentEnhancer (javaagent) is creates and initializes a new instance
of OpenJPAConfigurationImpl, but the Sequence plugin you're using requires a JDBCConfigurationImpl.
It's the initialization that causes the problem - we're initializing a plugin that requires
more information than we have (e.g. JDBC knowledge). 

Fixing it might be interesting - I'd be tempted to lazily initialize instead of eagerly creating
all the plugins. This might break other things though - the code indicates that there once
was a threading issue. Failing that we'd have to make OpenJPAConfigurationImpl more fault
tolerant which could get a bit thorny too. 

At any rate, please do try enhancing at build time. A good reference can be found here :
