You should use the elementType version of "all" here. As in:
Otherwise the array is an Object array, where each of the
objects here is a float[]. Which is fine except for the Java casting
rules for arrays, which cause exception on your next line:

>         float[][] resampledSpectra = tmp.getArray();   <--- exception

And actually, even this wasn't handled consistently, but now is
in updated jar.
