Java reverse engineering parse errors

A lot of my classes are not reverse engineered because of the following parse error:
[23:38:55] [Error] Unable to read file …, Parse error at line 120, column 45. Encountered: ::

Is it possible that method references are not supported ?

Hi Mario,

Thanks for using Visual Paradigm.

Would you provide similar code for our engineering to diagnose the issue?

Hi Mercus,

*** CODE ***

import java.util.HashSet;
import java.util.Set;

public class ClassWithMethodReference {
private Set integerSet = new HashSet<>();

public ClassWithMethodReference() {
integerSet.add( 1.0 );
integerSet.add( 2.0 );

public void print( double i ) {
System.out.println( i );

public void event() { Double.class::cast ).forEach( this::print );

public static void main( String[] args ) {
ClassWithMethodReference classWithMethodReference = new ClassWithMethodReference();

*** CODE ***

=> [14:05:58] [Error] Unable to read …, Parse error at line 24, column 27. Encountered: ::

Apparently it’s the cast that causes problems.

Hi Jick,

Is this patch available for all version of Visual Paradigm ? We’re still using 15.2.

Maybe I did something wrong, but locally the issue doesn’t seem to be solved.

Hi Mario,

Let me confirm with our team first. I will come back to you asap.

Thank you.
