2589689 - Class Cast Exception on Promotion Module


Whenever there is a promotion configuration in which two RAO objects have the same code, for example (promotion code and rule group code ) or (category code in condition and promotion code), these objects are considered as equal which causes class cast exception in promotion module during its publication. Although the status will be 'Published', the promotion will not fire and any further attempt to publish another promotion will also fail with the same symptom, until the server is restarted.
