java.lang.classcastexception

What is this telling me?  Is it saying the java.lang.classcastexception
cannot be found or is it one or more of the others that the java.lang.classcastexception calls that can't be found? Is java.lang.classcastexception not part of the base java package?  What are all those com.ibm.servlet things for?

Who is Participating?
 
objectsConnect With a Mentor Commented:
A ClassCastException is part of the base Java package and is throw when an invalid cast is attempted.
From the Javadoc:

Thrown to indicate that the code has attempted to cast an object to a subclass of which it is not an instance. For example, the following code generates a ClassCastException:


     Object x = new Integer(0);
     System.out.println((String)x);

> What are all those com.ibm.servlet things for?

Thats just the stack trace showing the call stack when the error occurred.

The com.ibm.servlet things are from Visual Age java's Websphere Test Environment.  I compiled a bunch of servlets using VAJava then tried moving to WebSphere Application Server.  I get exceptions then have to import these packages from WTE to Websphere to get to the next exception. Finally added entire WTE as part of classpath but now its calling for a method in a class, but the method does not exist in that class.
Got a whole bunch of questions over in the Websphere section you might understand.  Will be putting this out as question later.
