Subject [jira] Created: (CLK-609) Use generics where appropriable
Date Fri, 15 Jan 2010 20:26:54 GMT
Use generics where appropriable

                 Key: CLK-609
             Project: Click
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: core, extras
            Reporter: Andrey Rybin
            Priority: Minor

Because Click requires Java 1.5, Click can use its generics support.
For example:

  public <T extends Page> T createPage (Class<T> pageClass) {
        return clickServlet.createPage(pageClass, request);

protected <T extends Page> T createPage (Class<T> pageClass, HttpServletRequest
request) {
  String path = getConfigService().getPagePath(pageClass);

  if (path == null) {
    String msg =
        "No path configured for Page class: " + pageClass.getName();
    throw new IllegalArgumentException(msg);

  return (T) initPage(path, pageClass, request);

then you can do:

MyPage1 x = getContext() .createPage(MyPage1.class);//no explicit cast

getContext() .createPage(String.class);//compilation error, red code in IDE
