Does anybody know what kind of windows callbacks throws the following exception (see the callstack below).
The callstack contains a ListView.wndProc call, so it's possible that it's a ListView specific question.
The application was built with Microsoft Visual J++ 6.0.

Please show snippet of code associated to this error message if it told you or if your main() method is fairly small just paste in the whole thing.

java.lang.ClassCastException ==> Usually occurs when you are setting one object equal to another object and the explicit or implicit casting cannot be done.  Examples would be you can cast a sub class to a parent class, but not the other way around.   Things of that nature.

Usually you will see this in code as:
Type2 t2 = (Type2) t1;

mwvisa1:
I can't reproduce the problem, it's very ad hoc. My source is not too little (~2 MB) and the main() method is very simple (see below)

I think the conflict must be between the followings:
- Timer (I use ~30 timer, but I use these very rarely, the most is disabled)
- com.ms.wfc.app.MethodInvoker: to make changes on the Controls requested from a thread (not from the main thread)
- ListView callback (it appears on the callstack lista)

I know the ClassCastException but it's thrown by an automatic windows callback, not by my code. I never use the
Timer.TimerProc class, and I never cast it.

jkr:
I think this problem is closer to mfc than standard java programming (because of microsoft java using and windows callbacks)

I hope, that somebody met something like similar.
Thanks!

	public static void main(String args[])
	{
		Form2.params = args;
		Application.OLERequired();
		Application.run(new Form2());
	}

This could be a threading issue which is why it happens haphazardly as it depends on occurrence of conflict.
// this statement makes me think you are setting a static variable
// what happens if another call comes in and changes this mid stream
// is params defined as String[] like args is
Form2.params = args; 
 
Application.OLERequired();
 
// you then call a new form instance here
// hopefully this form uses the static params passed in above
Application.run(new Form2());
 
 
/********************/
// could this work for you
Form2 f = new Form2(); // or Form2(args); 
f.params = args;
Application.OLERequired();
Application.run(f);

The Form2 object is created only in the main(), has only one instance.
I don't know what another call could come in, but I'm going to give it a try.

I will inform you within few days.

Thanx.

Not work. The exception and the callstack are the same.

tcdev,

I am not sure what is causing this right now.  Maybe you are right that you need a MFC officianado. :)

Will keep monitoring question and thinking of possible causes/solutions, though.

Replacing all the timers with my own timer class instances gives me the solution. My timer class is consist of a simple thread and MethodInvoker calls at all ticks.
