Postscript: Why claim the generified collection framework to be an absurdity? Fine, it has a steeper learning curve in order to use parameterized types, but doing so gives you a huge increase in reliability. I'll take compile-time checking over having to write unit tests any day. Especially when I may need to spend a day debugging my code to find a run-time error my unit tests didn't catch.
