Generics

Hi,
i use intellij idea version "Selena 7860". i have a question about code completion of generics like:

--
new ArrayList]]>();
--

Is it possible? i get only the java1.4 code completion, but not the java5 code completion with generics.

Can anyone help?

thanks
marko

The feature you ask works for smart completion only, i.e. if you type List l = new then you are presented with ArrayList]]> variant. Otherwise if String is not known from the context, then it seems nonsense to suggest ArrayList of all possible types.

It's a pity. eclipse support this. maybe i can do a workaround with LiveTemplates.

Anyway, thanks for help

IntelliJ supports this just fine. Type:

List]]> list = new

then press ctrl-shift-space. Available completions will popup.

Just curious: what exactly use case Eclipse supports?
