Re: [eclipse-dev] [cross-project-issues-dev] org.eclipse.equinox.common has added generics to API in org.eclipse.core.runtime package


where do you see compiler *errors*?

It is OK to override the public <T> T getAdapter(Class<T> adapter) method with public Object getAdapter(Class adapter), the only thing you will have are  new *warnings*. 

Can it be that you just have tuned your local JDT compiler settings to report those warnings as errors?
