Description Mike Foley 2012-01-31 13:45:22 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #756086 +++ It is for the API documentation to include these methods mentioned in the BZ loggers repro steps ... DriftManager is not in CLI API doc, nor the getDriftFileAsByteArray() method. Description of problem: When running the CLI in interactive mode, the console throws a ClassCastException when calling a method that returns a byte array. Based on the exception, it looks like we might get the exception with any primitive array. Here is the exception: java.lang.ClassCastException: [B cannot be cast to [Ljava.lang.Object; at org.rhq.bindings.output.TabularWriter.print(TabularWriter.java:133) at org.rhq.enterprise.client.commands.ScriptCommand.execute(ScriptCommand.java:159) at org.rhq.enterprise.client.ClientMain.executePromptCommand(ClientMain.java:316) at org.rhq.enterprise.client.ClientMain$1.run(ClientMain.java:261) at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:662) Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Steps to Reproduce: 1. Log into the CLI console 2. Call a method that returns a Java byte array (I produced this by calling DriftManager.getDriftFileAsByteArray) 3. Actual results: Expected results: Additional info: --- Additional comment from firstname.lastname@example.org on 2011-11-22 13:20:47 EST --- cli only. does not affect drift-ui. --- Additional comment from email@example.com on 2011-11-22 13:35:48 EST --- cli only. does not affect drift-ui. --- Additional comment from firstname.lastname@example.org on 2011-11-22 14:11:52 EST --- And to further clarify, this bug is **not** related to drift. It is CLI-specific bug that I happened to stumble on while making some drift API calls. A user should be able to reproduce this exception by calling any method that returns a byte array and quite possibly an array of any other primitive type. --- Additional comment from email@example.com on 2011-11-28 23:15:00 EST --- (9:49:31 PM) ccrouch: jsanda: none of the normal drift use cases are impacted by https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=756086# correct? (9:50:02 PM) ccrouch: because otherwise we would have hit it before presumably? :-) (9:50:36 PM) ccrouch: i also doubt this is a regression from jon2.4 (9:51:12 PM) jsanda: looking... (9:51:51 PM) jsanda: i don't think that this impacts drift use cases (9:52:04 PM) jsanda: i also agree about it not being a regression (9:52:25 PM) jsanda: the class in question has had problems since the inception of the CLI (9:52:33 PM) jsanda: these types of parsing problems that is (9:53:41 PM) ccrouch: ok, given this is the first time we're hitting this, I'm presuming this datatype is not very common in the api (9:54:13 PM) jsanda: in the drift api or the cli api in general? (9:55:21 PM) jsanda: i'd have to review the remote apis to see where we have return type of byte array (9:55:23 PM) ccrouch: the cli api in general (9:55:39 PM) jsanda: we might in a few place (9:55:40 PM) jsanda: s (9:56:25 PM) ccrouch: ok, i'll assign it to lukas to take a look --- Additional comment from firstname.lastname@example.org on 2011-11-28 23:15:05 EST --- Lukas, can you have a quick investigate here. I'm particularly interested to know if this is a regression from JON2.4. Also is a fix feasible? Small? Safe? I'm suspicious of any changes in this area right before the release, since its sounds like a fundamental aspect of the CLI --- Additional comment from email@example.com on 2011-11-28 23:15:11 EST --- (9:56:58 PM) jsanda: i think we have more places that take a byte array as a param as opposed to having it as a return type (9:57:27 PM) jsanda: also keep in mind that this is limited to the interactive console only --- Additional comment from firstname.lastname@example.org on 2011-11-29 15:31:54 EST --- this is not a regression and it has small impact, only because few APIs actually return arrays. note that this is a problem for both primitive and object arrays. Will be writing unit tests in TabularWriterTest. --- Additional comment from email@example.com on 2011-11-29 17:18:44 EST --- committed to master: 756086
Comment 1 Deon Ballard 2012-02-14 12:14:03 EST
The DriftManager class is in the remote API: http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/JBoss_Operations_Network/100/html/API/remote-api/org/rhq/enterprise/server/drift/DriftManagerRemote.html Now, I can't find getDriftFileAsByteArray() in the API doc or in the 3.0 new/changed classes list for DriftManager. It looks like it was added on 11/19/2011. I could have sworn I didn't do the API generation until after Thanksgiving, but I may be mistaken. If I regen the API, that should get pulled in.
Comment 2 Deon Ballard 2012-06-28 16:06:08 EDT
The method is in the regenerated docs: http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/JBoss_Operations_Network/3.0/html/API/remote-api/org/rhq/enterprise/server/drift/DriftManagerRemote.html And also in the 3.1 docs.
Comment 3 Heiko W. Rupp 2013-09-01 15:21:37 EDT
Bulk closing of BZs that have no target version set, but which are ON_QA for more than a year and thus are in production for a long time.
