rjmarvin writes: OpenJDK 9 will make generics easier to turn into specialized classes http://sdt.bz/71490. Java language architect and Oracle engineer Brian Goetz detailed some of Java's proposed future plans in a lengthy blog post http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~br..., explaining how generics can be extended over primitives and eventually value types.The changes being bandied about now are variations of what other languages do with generic specialization, but the first proposal is to use *T at the end of a typename or bytecode to signify that the type is derived from the erasure of T.
