Subject [lang] Checking for NULL
Date Tue, 17 Nov 2009 09:33:56 GMT
The new ObjectUtils.firstNonNull() method checked for both null and the 
ObjectUtils.NULL constant object. Since that was the only method with 
that behaviour I removed the check for the NULL object.

The question is broader than that... do we want all null checks in 
ObjectUtils or [lang] to also check for ObjectUtils.NULL?

IMO, the NULL constant was intended for collections where null isn't 
valid. So I don't think I'd add broader checks.
