Hi Ranchers,

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).

If JavaRanch did start a generics forum, I recommend calling it "forum" so that it would be really generic.

I agree. Here's the link:
