Exception in thread “main” java.lang.ClassCastException

Posted: May 9, 2012 in Java


It is the child class of Runtime Exception and it is unchecked. It is raised automatically by JVM. When ever we are trying to perform type casting from parent to child type.


public class Test {

public static void main(String[] args) {

String s =”gopal”;

Object o = (Object)s;

Object object = new Object();

String string = (String) object;  ——> Here we are type casting Parent to child so we get ClassCastException




Exception in thread “main” java.lang.ClassCastException: java.lang.Object cannot be cast to java.lang.String
