Java Generics: Instantiating Objects Of Type Parameter Without Passing Class Literal To Instance

Cause generics in Java 1.5 and 1.6 are implemented using erasure, in most cases you can not get class object for type parameter, which means that in your generic classes you can not instantiate objects of type parameters. For example, the following code will not compile:

class Foo<T> {
        T field;
        public void bar() {
                field = new T(); // error
        }
}
