I recently had to generate a polynomial trendline for some data I had. Microsoft Excel can do it (as can some other applications) but I needed to do it "by hand" (actually I did it in Java...)

Oliver's blog entry inspired me to get off my butt and write something.

Prior to the release of Java 5, the Java library had 1 class that provided access to type information at runtime - java.lang.Class. However, with the introduction of generics in Java 5, this has been extended significantly. Dealing with all these classes, and working with them at runtime, is overly complex, and reduces the power of generics.
Orthodox is a library that makes it easier to work with the Java type system at runtime.

Ted blogged about the absence of leadership in the direction of Java (the language).
One of the comments there suggested we forget about backward compatibility.
I'm not necessarily for or against that idea, but I do think it's worth thinking about, so we know what it is we're trying to preserve, and what we're willing to give up.
By necessity then, the first step must be to define what we mean be backwards compatibility...

The dimple framework turned up after I did some (mostly) random searching on Google.
