Subject [jira] [Commented] (UIMA-1524) JFSIndexRepository should be enhanced with new generic methods
Date Tue, 13 Sep 2016 17:31:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-1524?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15487847#comment-15487847

Richard Eckart de Castilho commented on UIMA-1524:
--------------------------------------------------

I have to admit, I am not so much a fan of using an interface to replace a static import,
be it for constants (which was already working before Java 8) or methods. Default methods
are good to implement default behavior in an interface and to allow a kind of multiple inheritance
that is otherwise not available in Java. But I don't think they are a particular good replacement
for static imports - in particular because the inherited default methods become part of the
interface of the class. So I'd prefer avoiding that.

> Existing methods should be overloaded with an additional Class argument to specify the
exact return type. This changes make down casting of returned objects unnecessary.
