I am using asmack as the xmpp backend for an Android app.
I have recently updated the asmack version from 16-0.8.2 to 17-0.8.3, and since them my app crashes because of LeafNode.getItems() returns a collection in which every other element is not an extension of Item, but rather a DefaultPacketExtension, so I’m getting this error:
java.lang.ClassCastException: org.jivesoftware.smack.packet.DefaultPacketExtension cannot be cast to org.jivesoftware.smackx.pubsub.Item
I have searched for this error, and I found this 3-year old thread about it: http://community.igniterealtime.org/thread/40781
It is the exact same symptom, but as you can see there, it has been fixed back then. It seems the latest update brought a regression with this.
(I apologize in advance, I don’t know the smack version difference between the asmack versions. I have tried looking for this information, but couldn’t find anything. If someone can point me in the direction of where I can search the code for hints, that’ll be great!)
