ClassCastException in ReportEngine running in spring @Service

HI,
I try running aspose.word java version 18.8, and I get a java.lang.ClassCastException when executing ReportEngine in Spring (in a @Service )

I simply reproduced the “HelloWorld” example and I get ClassCast Exception on the same class. Is there a classloader issue ?

Code:

    Sender sender = new Sender();
    sender.setName("LINQ Reporting Engine");
    sender.setMessage("Hello World");
    Document doc=new Document("C:/temp/HelloWorld.doc");
    // Create a Reporting Engine.
    ReportingEngine engine = new ReportingEngine();
    // Execute the build report.
    engine.buildReport(doc, sender, "sender");

Exception:

java.lang.ClassCastException: com.bcp.print.auditconfirmation.service.Sender cannot be cast to com.bcp.print.auditconfirmation.service.Sender

@fmorel

Thanks for your inquiry. The code you are using is correct. Please ZIP and attach your input Word document here for testing. We will investigate the issue on our side and provide you more information.

Hi Tahir,
I made a very small project that reproduces the issue.

testAspose.zip (29.8 KB)

The HelloWorld.doc is the same as in examples provided by Aspose.
Just launch the application “TestApplication” (main method),
Then open http://localhost:8080/document

@fmorel

Thanks for sharing the detail. We are working over your query and will get back to you soon.

@fmorel

Thanks for your patience. We have created a new Spring Boot application and tested the scenario using latest version of Aspose.Words for Java 18.8. We have not found the shared issue. The problem is somewhere at your end in your application. We have attached the test application with this post for your kind reference. SpringTest.zip (79.0 KB)

Thanks,

This is very tricky, the SpringTest.zip you provided works properly on our side.
I can’t see the difference that may cause the issue.
I’ll let you know if I find the reason.
Regards

@fmorel

Please feel free to ask if you have any question about Aspose.Words, we will be happy to help you.
