I was investigating the "instanceof vs getClass()== in equals method" problem across the spring framework code-base. It seems that any custom implementation of AbstractResource relying on its equals will lead to inconsistency with all the standard Spring implementations. But I have found a pair of classes with broken equals contract in the spring-aop library:

import org.springframework.aop.MethodMatcher;

public class MethodMatchersEqualsTest
public static void main(String[] args)
MethodMatcher first = MethodMatchers.union(MethodMatcher.TRUE, MethodMatcher.TRUE);
MethodMatcher second = new ComposablePointcut(MethodMatcher.TRUE).union(
new ComposablePointcut(MethodMatcher.TRUE)).getMethodMatcher();



This code will output:
So the equals contract is broken for this pair of MethodMatchers.

Affects: 3.2.3

Good catch! Fixed for 3.2.4 and 4.0 RC1 now.
