Subject [jira] [Commented] (COLLECTIONS-333) Generic versions of Transformed* classes

Thomas Neidhart commented on COLLECTIONS-333:
---------------------------------------------

It is still possible, but only when you use the raw version of the class without generics.
This should probably mentioned in the class javadoc of each of the Transformed* classes.

> The generic version of Transformer required the input and output types to be identical.
 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.
