> Hello,
> CollectionUtils.size(null) currently throws IllegalArgumentException("Unsupported object
type: null"). I think CollectionUtils.size(null) should return 0.
> Why?
> The aim of library is to minimize the amount of code that uses this library. In my experience,
in the most cases null collections can be threated as as zero-length. Current behavior causes
the need of many trivial null-checks.
