ClassCastException on Java2D while connecting an external display
Last modified: 2017-02-28 04:53:58 EST
Runs with a java application (in my case Scilab) and connect an external display (in my case HDMI on Intel free driver).
Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.ClassCastException: sun.awt.image.BufImgSurfaceData cannot be cast to sun.java2d.xr.XRSurfaceData
Work seems to be underway to fix this upstream, but is currently targeted to only be fixed in OpenJDK 9.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
According to https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-7172749, we should be picking the fix for this up when we update to 8u112.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 26 development cycle.
Changing version to '26'.
