Subject [collections] general problem with decorators
Date Thu, 02 Oct 2003 02:47:01 GMT

Basically, the lack of empty constructors with default decoration
decisions. Example I'm looking at:

I want an OrderedSet. The only way to get this is:

OrderedSet.decorate( new HashSet() )

[okay, could do TreeSet etc, also could use MapUtils].

I don't know about you, but this feels odd. :) Especially as the user
knows that HashSet is unordered, so why provide it.

This may be a unique example, but it seems that we could choose a default
empty map for each one.

Just a view..
