Description Jonathan Pryor 2014-10-31 12:30:41 UTC
This needs a proper test. Sorry. :-(

Sometimes, generator may emit the code:

  // This method is explicitly implemented as a member of an instantiated ISomeInterface
  void ISomeInterface.SomeMethod (global::Java.Lang.Object p0)
    SomeMethod (global::Java.Interop.JavaObjectExtensions.JavaCast<byte[]>(p0));

This fails, as JavaCast<T>() requires that T implement IJavaObject, and byte[] doesn't.

Presumably this is happening due to Java generics? Untested, but:

  // Java
  public interface SomeInterface<T> {
    void someMethod(T value);
  public class Whatever implements SomeInterface<byte[]> {
    public void someMethod(byte[] value) {}
