Description Richard Li 2004-07-22 19:47:18 UTC
[richardl@conundrum src]$ rpm -qa | grep gcj

The following program fails to compile with gcj:

public class Test {
    public Test(Object obj) { }

    public void someTestMethod() {
        new Test(null) { };

    public void someTestMethod2() {
        new Test((Object) null) { };


[richardl@conundrum tmp]$ gcj -C Test.java
Test.java: In class `Test':
Test.java: In method `Test.someTestMethod()':
Test.java:4: error: No constructor matching `(Test,void)' found in class `Test'.
       public void someTestMethod() {
Test.java: In class `Test$1':
Test.java: In constructor `(Test,void)':
Test.java:5: error: Can't find constructor `Test$1(V)' in type `Test$1'.
           new Test(null) { };
2 errors

This compiles fine with javac. The workaround is to cast the null, as shown in
the second test method.
Comment 1 Bryce McKinlay 2004-07-22 20:17:04 UTC
Confirmed. Compiler bug, so moving to java category.
Comment 2 Andrew Pinski 2004-10-23 20:43:14 UTC
We now get an ICE on the mainline (which I think can almost considered a regression) :
Test.java: In class 'Test':
Test.java: In method 'Test.someTestMethod()':
Test.java:5: internal compiler error: in mangle_pointer_type, at java/mangle.c:402
Please submit a full bug report,
