Hi ranchers,
I am really confused by it.See below code:

I use debug to see where error happens and found that Class inter = (Class) interfaceIter.next();was the trouble. But I think that is just a simple casting, so why?

Note that classes[i].getName() is a String.

You are adding Strings to the Set.

You can't cast them to a Class.
