Subject Re: [Collections] Is commons collections dormant ?
Date Wed, 15 Feb 2012 18:07:50 GMT

finally I've found the time to answer to this topic :) We had a similar 
discussion a while ago [1]. Back then James suggested to drop 
collections completely in favor of google guava. I have started to 
implement QueryableCollections in trunk anyway, because I still disagree 
with James.
I would appreciate comments from one of commons collections commiters, 
if they would like to have something like that. I still think, that the 
possibility to query for elements would be a nice addition to collections.

ATM I'm having some problems with the latest source:
Name clash: The method get(K) of type MultiMap<K,V> has the same erasure 
as get(Object) of type Get<K,V> but does not override it

Does anyone know something about that?
