A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
Drop code convention to follow casts by blank space
In the "Code Conventions for the JavaTM Programming Language", At 8.2 there is the advice, that casts should be followed by a blank space.
- Cast is a one-operand operator like - -- ++, so should better be joined to it's value/expression.
- The above mentioned rule is rarely accepted and used, even in Sun's JDK code base.
Difficult to make progress on maintaining JDK code conventions.
