Dear,

I am trying to use the Abbot 1.3 with Java 8 to automate Java Applet tests. I encountered a problem when run the AppletviewerTest as follows:

ava.lang.BootstrapMethodError: call site initialization exception
at java.lang.invoke.CallSite.makeSite(CallSite.java:328)
at java.lang.invoke.MethodHandleNatives.linkCallSite(MethodHandleNatives.java:296)

at sun.applet.AppletPanel.runLoader(AppletPanel.java:722)
at sun.applet.AppletPanel.run(AppletPanel.java:379)
at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:744)
Caused by: java.lang.invoke.LambdaConversionException: Invalid receiver type class sun.applet.AppletPanel; not a subtype of implementation type class sun.applet.AppletPanel
at java.lang.invoke.AbstractValidatingLambdaMetafactory.validateMetafactoryArgs(AbstractValidatingLambdaMetafactory.java:233)
at java.lang.invoke.LambdaMetafactory.metafactory(LambdaMetafactory.java:303)
at java.lang.invoke.CallSite.makeSite(CallSite.java:289)

Have anyone encountered this problem before? What is a possible cause of the problem?

PS. The test could run properly with Java 7

Best regards,
Krit K.
