JavaScript Exception : ClassCastException

Hello All,

I'm currently working on HttpUnit (As HtmlUnit is not an option at this time) for testing a vast web application which is composed of html, jsp , jsf and asp pages. I wrote a class which would randomly load all the testcases (Which are based on HttpUnit) and run them. This is working fine as long as I run these as a stand alone application.

But, there is an attempt being made to create a web interface, where in the request to run all these test suites come from servlet. So what did I do is just o call the stand alone class which I previously used to run the test cases from the servlet. But now, I'm getting a wierd exception. I tried to google about this, but could not find any appealing information.

Moreover, I tried to debug the application and found that at one point as mentioned below, the exception is throw. COde snippet is provided for observation

The part which is in bold and italics is creating the problem.

Exception is as given below:

Can some one Let me know the reason behind this.

Thanks & Regards, SK
