This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Here is my Options.hbm.xml, Options.java and ConfigurationLoader.java. The ConfigurationLoader fails because it throws an exception here: option = (Options)lists.get(i);
Its: "java.lang.ClassCastException: [Ljava.lang.Object; cannot be cast to database.Options".
