JPA Error - ClassCastException: SerialContext cannot be cast to DataSource?

If you happen to get this ClassCastException error while developing with JPA 2.0 and/or EclipseLink:
[EL Severe]: 2010-02-16 04:02:45.519--ServerSession(26903574)--

I solved this problem by removing the non-jta-data-source in the persistence.xml below:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<persistence version="2.0" xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/persistence" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/persistence http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/persistence/persistence_2_0.xsd">
  <persistence-unit name="PragmaticDciPU" transaction-type="RESOURCE_LOCAL">
    <provider>org.eclipse.persistence.jpa.PersistenceProvider</provider>
    <class>user.internal.UserMixin</class>
    <non-jta-data-source />
    <exclude-unlisted-classes>true</exclude-unlisted-classes>
    <properties>
      <property name="eclipselink.ddl-generation" value="create-tables"/>
      <property name="javax.persistence.jdbc.driver" value="org.apache.derby.jdbc.ClientDriver"/>
      <property name="javax.persistence.jdbc.url" value="jdbc:derby://localhost/pragmaticdci"/>
      <property name="javax.persistence.jdbc.user" value="app"/>
      <property name="javax.persistence.jdbc.password" value="app"/>
    </properties>
  </persistence-unit>
</persistence>
