[CTYP-263] Unnecessary type hint required in catch expression Created: 27/Jul/15  Updated: 01/Aug/15

Below is a case where core.typed requires a type hint that Clojure itself doesn't.
(Clojure 1.7, core.typed 0.3.9)

user=> *warn-on-reflection*

user=> (try :anything (catch Exception e (.getCause e)))

user=> (t/cf (try :anything (catch Exception e (.getCause e))))
Type Error (/tmp/form-init1733185424844917450.clj:1:41) Unresolved host interop: getCause

Target java.lang.Exception has no member getCause

Hint: use *warn-on-reflection* to identify reflective calls
in: (. e getCause)

ExceptionInfo Type Checker: Found 1 error  clojure.core/ex-info (core.clj:4593)

Adding a hint satisfies core.typed, but is unnecessary for plain Clojure.

user=> (t/cf (try :anything (catch Exception e (.getCause ^Exception e))))
(t/U (t/Val :anything) nil Throwable)

This used to work without the hint. It first started failing here: (git bisect)
