Subject [jira] Commented: (COLLECTIONS-110) Support parametized classes with commons.collections.
Date Thu, 19 Feb 2009 18:00:07 GMT


Daniel Golesny commented on COLLECTIONS-110:

I like generics - it's sometimes hell (on implementation side), but much better than without
and nice at users side. We (at work) need collections with generics!
We tried the collections-fork, but they changed the package-names, so we took this an refactored
the packages changes back to original.

I would like to help coding! I'm checking out the jdk5-branch currently, hey that looks good
... I'll test it.
Just tell me, if I can help ..
