Libary causes Stackoverflow with creating TypeHierarchiy in Eclipse


When I add the Aspose PDF library to my build path and I declare a class
that extends one of the classes contained in the Aspose PDF JAR, I get a
Stackoverflow error. The same problem occurrs when I create a type hierarchy.

See also https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=422832 for the
responding bugid in Eclipse. Not the mind it is not at all an aspose problem.
I think so please look what you can do.

It is the aspose-pdf.4.3.0.jar
It seems to be the obfucated class aspose.b.a.a.class

I have never tried the one before an if it also cause the problem.

There is no problem with functions of the libary I used. It is only showing
within Eclipse an the JDT creating hierarchies.


Hi Babett,

for using our products.

have logged an investigation task in our issue tracking system as PDFNEWJAVA-33853. We will further look into the details of this problem and
will keep you updated on the status of correction. Please be patient and spare
us little time. We are sorry for this inconvenience.

Hi Babett,

Thanks for your patience.

We have further investigated the issue reported earlier and the aspose.pdf.jar file which exists in archive (https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/attachment.cgi?id=237840) seems to be damaged. It’s size is only 513 bytes. Whereas the actual aspose-pdf.4.3.0.jar has a size almost 11 MB. When a valid jar file is used, Stackoverflow in Eclipse doesn’t appear. Furthermore, please note that you can not extend aspose.b.a class - because it is final. and also it is not recommended to use obfuscated classes.
