I've actually gotten that suggestion before from QA engineers, thanks for reminding me of it.

comment Java Generics - how to strike a balance between expressiveness and simplicity
@lorus - my idea was to have a "transform" interface that I could use for a variety of transforms, as opposed to one specific case that is tailored to a specific combination of source and target item types. A way of summing up my post is "how do I keep it simple in a manner that wouldn't require significant rework in the future". We're in a typical corporate setting where deadlines are king and I can't just go refactor things unless there is a sound business reason. Same concern applies to YAGNI in Frank's comment.

comment Java Generics - how to strike a balance between expressiveness and simplicity
Unfortunately it's unlikely I'll be able to convince my team and management to jump straight from Java 6 to Java 8 :) In the meantime, could you please clarify what you mean by "Guava Collections already provides this functionality"? Are you talking about transforming collections? A pointer to a relevant resource would be very useful. Thanks!
