 Description  « Hide

There is a simple ClassCastException that occurs in TransformStructure because
one of the messages is not an Object[], it's a List:

// 433
for (int i = 0; i < oSize; i++) {
Object[] nodes = (Object[]) objectList.get;
if (J3dDebug.devPhase && J3dDebug.debug) { J3dDebug.doDebug(J3dDebug.transformStructure, J3dDebug.LEVEL_5, "vwcBounds computed this frame = " + nodes.length + "\n"); }

Exception in thread "J3D-TransformStructureUpdateThread-1"
java.lang.ClassCastException: java.util.ArrayList cannot be cast to

This is the result of a code path apparently not traversed very often, but the
fix is easy, and tested to work:

for (int i = 0; i < oSize; i++) {
Object[] nodes = null;
if (objectList.get instanceof List) { nodes = ((List)objectList.get(i)).toArray(); } else { nodes = (Object[]) objectList.get(i); }

This fix is low risk, and I would really like to see it in 1.5.2. Please provide

We'll take a look in the next day or two. For a very safe fix, such as this
appears to be, there may still be time to integrate it.

I found a better (and more compact) way to fix this issue so that the code
remains consistant. It involves simply appending "toArray()" to the call that
was adding a List where it sould be adding a Object[].

Marking as "started" as per standard procedure.

Ready to integrate.

Great! Your earlier fix is safe, but this is the preferred fix as it uses the
same pattern within j3d in passing message. I will integrate it today if there
isn't other issue pop up.

In fact, Chien and I took a quick look yesterday and were going to suggest the
exact fix you came up with most recently.

Integrated. Thanks!
