This paper provides an in-depth analysis of the new Java language feature called Java Generics and its relation to array component types and type covariance. We will explore the design decisions that lead to the actual implementation of the Java Generics and provide some work around solutions to the restrictions that Java Generics impose. We will also identify the source of confusion Java Generics generates among Java programmers related to array component types and type covariance issues.
