             Summary: Support for Transformer in LazyList
                 Key: COLLECTIONS-694
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COLLECTIONS-694
             Project: Commons Collections
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: List
    Affects Versions: 4.2
            Reporter: Stephan Windmüller


{{LazyList}} supports a {{Factory}} for creating new elements on first access. Since a {{Factory}}
does not take any arguments, those elements can not depend on any input values.

A possible use case is a list of objects from a database, fetched by their id. If an element
at a specific position is requested, it is retrieved from the database lazily. This would
require support of a {{Transformer}} (from id to database object).
