Nomenclature: Implementing a Generic Interface With Argument?

What would be the proper nomenclature for implementing a generic interface with an argument instead of a type parameter in a class declaration like this?



I have read where some people call it "implementing a concrete generic interface", but I don't know if that is specific enough because I think the class that implements it would be a concrete class whether the argument was provided or not.

What do you say?

I've never really thought about it... "Fixed"? "Typed"?

Don''t think that's right. After all, it's not really "generic" any more, is it?

Is there any particular reason you asked the question? That might help us.

Isn't it funny how there's always time and money enough to do it WRONG?
