Description Dongmei Cao 2008-04-25 00:35:02 UTC
To reproduce:

- create a new web project with Spring Web MVC framework selected
- create a new Java class
- try to refactor the new class to some other name.
- the following exception happens when click on Preview or Refactor button.

java.lang.ClassCastException: org.netbeans.editor.ext.ExtSyntaxSupport
	at org.netbeans.modules.spring.beans.editor.SpringXMLConfigEditorUtils.getDocumentRoot(
Comment 1 Dongmei Cao 2008-04-25 00:36:19 UTC
The bug is from today (4/22/08)'s main resposity. Not sure if it is also in 6.1

Comment 4 Dongmei Cao 2008-04-25 00:40:22 UTC
You can use either the described steps or the attached project to reproduce the bug. If you use the attached project,
try to rename the Java class Tester. That'll get you the exception.
Comment 5 Rohan Ranade 2008-04-25 05:32:56 UTC
Occurs in 6.1rc2 as well.
Comment 6 Andrei Badea 2008-04-25 18:04:54 UTC
What, no XMLSyntaxSupport for XML files? Something bad must have happened in the XML area.
Comment 7 Andrei Badea 2008-04-25 19:31:40 UTC
Not reproducible for me with the trunk sources from about two hours ago. Will also try the release61 branch.
Comment 8 John Baker 2008-04-25 19:36:24 UTC
I can reproduce with the the nightly trunk installer build 080425. 
Comment 9 Rohan Ranade 2008-04-25 19:42:18 UTC
what's more, the same scenario passes properly in a Java application project in 6.1 rc2.
Comment 10 Rohan Ranade 2008-04-25 19:55:12 UTC
Cause (and workaround) found: After creating a new web project, navigate to the project properties -> Spring framework
customizer -> Configuration files section. This list incorrectly lists the index.jsp as a spring configuration file. 
Once you remove the index.jsp and retry the action, it works.

Does this need to be release noted?
Comment 11 Andrei Badea 2008-04-25 20:00:34 UTC
Just find it too :-) I think we should try to fix it for 6.1. Rohan, I guess simplest if I take this, agreed?
Comment 12 Rohan Ranade 2008-04-25 20:06:05 UTC
Sure. Reassigning.
Comment 13 Andrei Badea 2008-04-25 20:53:02 UTC
OK, not for 6.1 anymore, so let's target for patch 1. Fixed in trunk.
