Problem Description:

There is tremendous inconsistency the way that java objects are used in CF and makes java interop basically null.

When creating certain direct java classes and calling methods on it, those methods seem to be lost and not executable.  Which goes against the JDK spec.  Below are several examples:

variables.longStream    = createObject( "java", "" );
variables.jStream = variables.longStream.range( 
            javaCast( "long", arguments.start ), 
            javaCast( "long", arguments.end ) 

var stream = createObject( "java", "" ).empty();

createObject("java", "java.lang.String").init( "luis" ).chars()

I am not sure why, but they work as they should in lucee.

Not a Bug. The java artifacts ( and in the example mentioned in the bug are interfaces. You can't create an object of an interface or abstract class.

Java8 introduced the support for having static methods in interface. CF today doesn't support invoking java interface methods. This will be an ER.

+1 - Methods must be callable. Basic stuff?
