[Biojava-l] Cast to Sequence

I'm having a problem with a JTree and rendering of Sequences.

Since the JTree calls toString() on objects when displaying them, I
had to make my own TreeCellRenderer because the Sequence toString
method prints out debug info.

My code looks like this:

public class FeatureTreeCellRenderer extends DefaultTreeCellRenderer 
  public Component getTreeCellRendererComponent(JTree tree, Object value,
    boolean sel, boolean expanded, boolean leaf, int row, boolean hasFocus)
    JLabel l = (JLabel) super.getTreeCellRendererComponent(tree,
      value, sel, expanded, leaf, row, hasFocus);
      Sequence s = (Sequence) value;            
    return l;

My problem is that I always get a ClassCastException. The weird thing
is that the println method call above the cast clearly shows that the
cast should be possible.

This is the output of the pint statement:

org.biojava.bio.seq.impl.SimpleSequence at 2ba11b name: DNA seq 0

And this is the exception:

Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.ClassCastException:

I'm so confused. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
Jacob Rohde
