/**
 * <p>Thrown when an object is an instance of an unexpected type (a class or interface).
 * This exception supplements the standard <code>IllegalArgumentException</code>
 * by providing a more semantically rich description of the problem.</p>
 * 
 * <p><code>IllegalClassException</code> represents the case where a method takes
 * in a genericly typed parameter like Object (typically because it has to due to some
 * other interface it implements), but this implementation only actually accepts a specific
 * type, for example String. This exception would be used in place of
 * <code>IllegalArgumentException</code>, yet it still extends it.</p>
 * 
 * <pre>
 * public void foo(Object obj) {
 *   if (obj instanceof String == false) {
 *     throw new IllegalClassException(String.class, obj);
 *   }
 *   // do something with the string
 * }
 * </pre>
