BUG: ClassView Does Not Fully Support Interfaces


The ClassView pane in Visual J++ is not fully aware of Java interfaces. As
a result, it displays incomplete or invalid properties, or generates
invalid Java code when the right-click context menus are used to add code.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products
listed at the beginning of this article. We are researching this problem
and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it
becomes available.


Steps to Reproduce Behavior

Add the following interface definition to an AppWizard-generated Java

interface Test{}
Save the changes to the file, and view the ClassView tab of the Project
Workspace window. The "new" interface Test appears in the project
"classes" display. In the ClassView pane, right-click "interface Test"
to open the context menu, then select properties. The properties dialog
box lists a "Base Class" of java.lang.Object. This is incorrect because
interfaces do not have base classes.

If the interface extends through several other interfaces, the properties
dialog box shows only the first interface in the extends list as the "Base

Similarly, if you use the right-click context menu to Add a non-final
variable or a non-abstract class method to interface Test, invalid Java
code is generated that can cause various compile-time errors.
