A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
Mixing raw and parameterized generic types is error-prone. It would be useful to have a compiler option to reject use of raw types but to be able to annotate a class or method to exempt the annotated code from this behavior.
Suggested annotation: @PermitRawTypes
To avoid erroneous use of raw types.
CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
Eclipse now provides the desired compiler option, but without the permissive annotation.
