ClassCastException: oracle.ojc.compiler.AutoBoxingExpression JDeveloper 10.3

I'm getting an odd exception using JDeveloper 10.3 compiling with JDK 1.5.

ClassCastException: oracle.ojc.compiler.AutoBoxingExpression

Anybody run across this before?
I'm mostly an Eclipse guy, so is there something with JDev or the internal OC4J server I'm missing? I haven't started the server.

Probably to do with Generics. These days you need to tell the compiler what sort of objects are involved.

Previously : Vector v = new Vector();

with generics:

Vector<String> v = new Vector<String>();

etc.

Sure, that makes sense, but the class that's throwing the exception is in the oracle libraries. Maybe my .jars are out of date.

I'll credit for correct response if that's what it turns out to be. Thanks.

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

Yes, but it's important to see it anyway. Unfortunately the authors of the code have not seen fit to show the problematic source (of course i'm assuming the error IS caused by a problem in compiling the source) so it makes it difficult to correct.

What i would do in this case is start updating stuff. You should in any case be using a 1.7 compiler (even if you compile to target 1.5). Also update the JDeveloper version if possible.

If that doesn't cure it, let us know

Before you close this, please state the solution here that explains how to get JDeveloper working correctly. It should not be necessary to use a different compiler

When I selected "use javac" in the JDeveloper compiler properties, both errors (this and the class format error in my other thread) resolved. The reason for two threads was that the class format error was discovered before db connection was established, so I hadn't tried to run at that point.
