Subject [jira] [Resolved] (COLLECTIONS-333) Generic versions of Transformed* classes
Date Wed, 06 Mar 2013 20:04:13 GMT


Thomas Neidhart resolved COLLECTIONS-333.

       Resolution: Won't Fix
    Fix Version/s:     (was: 4.0)
         Assignee:     (was: Stephen Kestle)

Not going to happen, as this will break the respective collection contract as already discussed

If somebody really want to do things like this, its better to use the respective collection
class without generics at all.

 This seemed to me to reduce the usefulness of transformed collections, as transforming one
type into another seems like it would be a fairly common operation.  I'm not sure how to fix
this, however, as it also doesn't seem feasible to have a generic TransformedCollection with
different input and output types that implements Collection<E>.  Anyway, this patch
de-generifies TransformedCollection, which also fixes some compilation problems.  Please disregard
this change if you disagree and have a better solution.
> Cloned from COLLECTIONS-243, where there is much Transformed* discussion.
