>  * Create a type-safe generic array.
>  *
>  * <p>Arrays are covariant i.e. they cannot be created from a generic type:</p>
>  *
>  * <pre>
> public static &lt;T&gt; T[] toArray(int size)
> {
>     return T[size]; // compiler error here
> }
> public static &lt;T&gt; T[] toArray(int size)
> {
>     return (T[])Object[size]; // ClassCastException at runtime
> }
>  * </pre>
>  *
>  * <p>Therefore new arrays of generic types can be created with this method, e.g.
an arrays of Strings:</p>
>  *
>  * <pre>
> String[] array = ArrayUtils.toArray("1", "2");
> String[] emptyArray = ArrayUtils.&lt;String&gt;toArray();
>  * </pre>
>  *
>  * @param  <T>   the array's element type
>  * @param  items the items of the array
>  * @return the array
>  * @author J&ouml;rg Schaible
>  * @since  3.0
