Thanks for having a look.

You are right about casting not being needed here.

It came up in training, so I wanted to come up with an example (albeit a contrived, and probably invalid one), so I could play with it and get my head wrapped around the concept.

I'm currently going through some training in Java. Most if has gone smoothly, but I'm stuck on one point: casting.

What I've done is created a Java project in eclipse (for learning purposes).

Two basic classes in it: buildings and houses. Houses inherits from buildings:

Nothing to complex aside from a few getter's and setter's.

I also have a tester class:

The part I'm hung up on is the casting. The way it is now, I get: Type mismatch: cannot convert from buildings to int.

I've also tried:

That gives: getStories cannot be resolved or is not a field.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Any help would be appreciated.

We have several apps we're hosting on tomcat 6029 on linux (SLES 11 64bit).

We're getting errors in our tomcat, and also having hang and /or restart from time to time:

Is there something I'm missing in my configuration?

We use these parameters is

-server -XX:+UseParallelOldGC -Xms1024m -Xmx1256m -XX:PermSize=256m -XX:MaxPermSize=512m"

Any help or insight into this would be appreciated.

I've set up our test box to start tomcat 6.0.32 as a service. It starts tomcat with no problems, but when I try to stop i get:

Could not stop the Apache Tomcat 6 service on local computer.

Error: 1053: The service did not respond in a timely fashion.

If I look at the event view, I see: timeout (30000 miliseconds) waiting for a transaction response from the service.

This happens on Windows 2003 32bit and Windows xp sp3. The xp box is my local machine, and the tomcat install there has no apps, while the Tomcat on Windows 2003 has several apps. The behaviour is the same on both.

Any ideas / help would be appreciated.
