Subject Re: [Collections] Is commons collections dormant ?

Thomas ,

You are right , maybe using Tomcat as an example was not really an
appropiate example. Maybe I should have used Hibernate or Apache Derby
as an example , but you already answered my question regarding wheter
or not generics can afffect such products , wich its actually
reassuring despise the lack of updates.

With my Tomcat committer hat on:
No. Primarily because Tomcat doesn't have a dependency on collections
and hasn't for some time.

Tomcat does depend on other Commons libraries that have yet to be
converted to generics (pool, dbcp) and it causes absolutely no

Don't get me wrong, I am all for generics but please don't go parading
Tomcat around as a reason to do so.
