> The new method on function, getRequiredPermissions takes an Optional<String> as
parameter.
> At point point, we added a parameterized type to the function interface (Function<T>).
However, if someone tries to implement Function without the type (eg implements Function instead
of implemments Function<Object>), then they get the below compilation error:
> {noformat}
> Error:(85, 41) java: name clash: getRequiredPermissions(java.util.Optional<java.lang.String>)
in org.apache.geode.cache.lucene.internal.distributed.WaitUntilFlushedFunction and getRequiredPermissions(java.util.Optional<java.lang.String>)
in org.apache.geode.cache.execute.Function have the same erasure, yet neither overrides the
other
> {noformat}
> In addition to this annoyance Optional is generally discouraged as a parameter to a method
in favor of method overloading. At least my IDE is providing a warning to that effect. Maybe
having an overloaded method for getRequiredPermissions would be better?
