ClassCastException for same class with Spring Boot + Redis Cache



Asked on August 12, 2018
Hi, I am creating Spring Boot application with Redis Cache. My pom.xml is

<dependency>
  <groupId>org.springframework.boot</groupId>
  <artifactId>spring-boot-starter-data-jpa</artifactId>
</dependency>
<dependency>
  <groupId>org.springframework.boot</groupId>
  <artifactId>spring-boot-starter-data-redis</artifactId>
</dependency>   
<dependency>
  <groupId>org.apache.commons</groupId>
  <artifactId>commons-pool2</artifactId>
</dependency>   
<dependency>
  <groupId>org.springframework.boot</groupId>
  <artifactId>spring-boot-devtools</artifactId>
  <optional>true</optional>
</dependency> 

I am running application using command

mvn spring-boot:run 

Once data is cached then in second hit we are not getting cached data instead an error.

java.lang.ClassCastException: com.test.entity.Student cannot be cast to com.test.entity.Student

How to fix it?

The error is because of Spring Boot Dev Tools limitations. According to Spring Boot Doc

"Restart functionality does not work well with objects that are deserialized by using a standard ObjectInputStream."

As you are using

<dependency>
  <groupId>org.springframework.boot</groupId>
  <artifactId>spring-boot-devtools</artifactId>
  <optional>true</optional>
</dependency>

That is why you are getting ClassCastException. Work around are

1. Run application using executable JAR

Create executable Jar using

mvn clean package

Then that JAR

java -jar target/myapp.jar

2.  Disable caching for testing purpose.

3. Handle serialization/deserialization.
