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.

Thanks,
Jimmy

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.
