Classcast exception: ProjectComponent to GenericValue Edited

In JIRA AMPS Version 6.2.11, I am getting classcastexception when I try to assign  ProjectComponent object to GenericValue. It was working before but giving issues with JIRA 7.5. Any suggestions please?

Here is the code and error

for (Iterator<ProjectComponent> compIterator = compCollection.iterator(); compIterator.hasNext();){

GenericValue component = (GenericValue);


java.lang.ClassCastException: com.atlassian.jira.bc.project.component.ProjectComponentImpl cannot be cast to org.ofbiz.core.entity.GenericValue

Hello Srinivas,

Why are you trying to cast "ProjectComponent" to GenericValue bean?

Since all over the APIs this approach seems to have been deprecated and it's mentioned not to use "GenericValue" rather use the "ProjectComponent" bean

convertToGenericValue(ProjectComponent projectComponent)Deprecated. don't use GenericValue use the ProjectComponent instead.

getGenericValue()This method is deprecated. use this object instead

GenericValue was used in some plugins that were developed long back and we are trying to refactor the code using the latest sdk. I replaced the GenericValue with ProjectComponent and that compiled successfully but for some reason the functionality is not working so I am looking if other way to achieve.
