I sincerely feel that the OO paradigm has suffered a setback with Backward Compatibility support in Java 5.0, for Raw Types in java.util.Collections of Previous Java Versions.
Especially the sacrifices made w.r.t the semantics of Generics in Java 5.0 to accommodate this interoperability with Legacy Code of previous Java versions.
So I am sending an attachment (MS_Word 2007 Document) with this mail containing my suggestions for correcting the situation with Java 7.0.
I have included the arguments in favor of my suggestions.
I definitely hope that these will be looked into, and even implemented, if there is no flaw in my arguments, and if bigger constraints do not forbid them from being incorporated into Java 7.0.
