At JavaOne 2012, Venkat Subramaniam of Agile Developer, Inc, presented a conference session titled "The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly of Java Generics." Dr Subramaniam discussed the use of generics, what to watch out for when using generics, and best practices.
To learn more about working with generics, see the Generics trail in the Java Tutorials. The trail was recently expanded and coverage added for the following topics:
- Generics, Inheritance, and Subtypes
- Guidelines for Wildcard Use
- Restrictions on Generics
- Wildcard Capture and Helper Methods
- Effects of Type Erasure and Bridge Methods
From the conference session page, you can watch the presentation.
