First of all I have to thank all the members of this site for its incredible support to Java developers world wide.
Now that Java 5 has got a major language makeover using Generics, I feel that this site should start a new forum specifically for Generics only. This would help people like me, in understanding/querying about this feature more in depth. As of now I haven�t come across too many places where one can look for learning Generics, though I found a particular site that is pretty good & has some real meat Angelika Langer - Generics FAQs.
Your generics questions are welcome in Java in General (Intermediate), although sometimes the thornier questions (especially those involved in implementing generic classes, rather than just using them as a client) are appropriate for Java in General (Advanced).
Originally posted by Rick Portugal: If JavaRanch did start a generics forum, I recommend calling it "forum" so that it would be really generic.
The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
