I have a situation nearly identical to this very old article where I want to generated a support class which I need to create a type reference to. The newTypeRef API looks like what I want but seems to have been removed or replaced although with what I cannot tell.

I found that creating the typeRef to the to be generate type works if I run from Eclipse (the JDTTypeProvider seems to pick up on the generated type and eventually resolve the JvmUnknownTypeReference), however outside of Eclipse where I don't have a provider running on incremental changes the safe initialization sometimes ends up producing types like:

Object /* List<? extends frusteratingly.the.correct.type> */

It seems to consistently fail on wildcard extends.

What is the right way to do this?
