Hello,

I'm trying to model a simple list using Java generics but am so far unable
to get eclipse to generate the code correctly. What I want to do is create
the following:

public class List<E> extends EObjectImpl implements EObject {
public void add(E x) {}
}


public class ConcreteList extends EObjectImpl implements MyList<Class> {
public void add(Class x) {
}

but I can only get it to create:

public class List<E> extends EObjectImpl implements EObject {
public void add(E x) {}
}

public class ConcreteList extends EObjectImpl implements MyList {
public void add(E x) {
}

How do I get the concreate list class to replace the generic <E> with a
concreate class in the ConcreteList?

Correctly being relative to your expectation....

This seems problematic to me. List has a specific requirement for the
implementation of hashCode and equals which conflicts with the specific
requirement for equals and hashCode for EObject.

And how did you get it to do that?

My brain is a little sore after than sentence. I don't think there's
enough context to answer your question. As I suggested initially, an
EObject that's also a List is contradictory...

Hello Ed,

Thanks for your response and I apologise for my confusing post.

I've decided to abandon the inheritance approach but still have an issue
very similar to the one recently added by Gary Thompson
( http://www.eclipse.org/newsportal/article.php?id=42889&g roup=eclipse.tools.emf#42889)

So I've decided to post a response to Gary's problem rather than continue
on this separate thread as our issues seem rather similar.
