Hi all,

Please review this draft JEP for Convenience Factory Methods for


Brief background: several times over the years there have been proposals to
add "collection literals" to the language. The most recent round of this
was in regard to JEP 186, a research JEP to explore this topic. That effort
was concluded by Brian Goetz, as summarized in this email:


Essentially, the idea of adding collection literals to the language was set
aside in favor of adding some library APIs, not entirely unlike collection
literals, that make it more convenient to create collections. That's what
this proposal is.

Share and enjoy,
