Project Coin: JSR 334 EDR now available

The JSR 334 expert group has been hard at work and now the early draft review (EDR) is now available for your reading pleasure, enjoy.

Hi,

I'm not sure this is the appropriate place, but there was an earlier article about efforts to update the JDK codebase to use new features of the language. Ok, Generics aren't _that_ new but:

Is there a reason why javax.swing.ListModel was generified, but not its subinterfaces?

This "types swallowing" actually causes non-fixable breakage in Scala, where the scala-swing package can't be built anymore against the Java 7 code base.

The relevant bug ticket in Scala's trac is https://lampsvn.epfl.ch/trac/scala/ticket/3634

Maybe Oracle has already some bug about it? (Didn't bother to look since Oracle started to make more and more bug reports not visible anymore.)

Thanks!

@Steve,

Your comment is better directed on an OpenJDK alias like swing-dev@openjdk.java.net:

Hi Joe,

I sent it there but it seems no one is checking the approval queue for mails from unsubscribed senders ...

Bye,

Steve
