The Wall of Erasure

I mentioned the term "Wall of Erasure" in my previous post about Iterator adapters. My friend Weiqi Gao described it best in his blog entry where he said 'Every really cool idea involving Java generics will invariably lead to insurmountable difficulties the root cause of which is erasure'.

I just got a chance to read Eric Burke's latest blog entries, and he too has hit the Wall of Erasure (some commentors are suggesting it's not "all" erasure's fault, but that's a red herring).
