Subject [jira] [Created] (CODEC-141) Generics warnings for StringEncoderComparator
Date Thu, 03 May 2012 10:48:50 GMT
Sebb created CODEC-141:
--------------------------

             Summary: Generics warnings for StringEncoderComparator
                 Key: CODEC-141
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CODEC-141
             Project: Commons Codec
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Sebb
         Attachments: CODEC-141.patch

The StringEncoderComparator class currently extends the raw type Comparator.

I think it should extend Comparator<Object>, as it implements compare(Object, Object).

Although it is documented as being a String comparator, some StringEncoder implementations
also support other types such as byte[].

Secondly, its compare() method currently casts the stringEncoder.encode() results to Comparable.
This might as well be String, as that is what a StringEncoder is supposed to do.
If a class cast exception occurs, then this is a bug in the provided StringEncoder (and casting
to Comparable would likely also fail).
