Testing Primitives in Generics and Value Types

Hi,

I built valhalla from source code and want to test primitives in generics
and value types.

For testing primitives I created Box class;

public class Box<T> {

        private final T t;
        public Box(T t) {this.t= t;}
        public T get() {return t;}

        public static void main(String[] args){
           Box<int> box= new Box<>(5);
           System.out.println(box.get());
        }
}

and tried to compile with javac in valhalla, but it gives;

Box.java:8: error: unexpected type
           Box<int> box= new Box<>(5);
               ^
  required: reference
  found:    int
1 error


Do I miss something?

Additionally, can you point me to an example for testing value types if
something is ready?


Thanks.
