Subject [jira] [Commented] (TAP5-1493) Property expressions on properties that are covariant on a base class use the type of the base class property, not the covariant subclass
Date Fri, 27 Jun 2014 11:18:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAP5-1493?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14045823#comment-14045823

Lance commented on TAP5-1493:
-----------------------------

I just read Alexander Gavrilov's comment above. As he said, you should be able to use 
{code}Method.isBridge(){code}
And use the non-bridge method (instead of Modifiers.isVolatile(...) as i suggested).

> Here property bar is covariant; the subclass (Foo) changes the type of the return value
(from AbstractBar to just Bar). Assuming that Bar is a subclass of AbstractBar, that's fine.
> The bug is that in this circumstance, the PropertyConduitSource sees the type of
> property "bar" of class Foo as AbstractBar, not Bar.
> Interestingly, a little debugging showed that the getter method for property bar was
"public AbstractBar Foo.getBar()" ... in other words, much like with Generics, covariant return
types may be largely
> a fiction of the compiler inserting the necessary casts in place.
