    can anyone demonstrate to me how to implement the TypeVariable<D extends
    GenericDeclaration> interface of the java.lang.reflect package?
    would really be helpful for me to see an algorithm that implements
    getBounds() and getGenericDeclaration(). am in the clouds from reading the
    language spec.

    I don't think one would implement a TypeVariable. One gets an
    implementation from an instance of java.lang.Class.


    Short example:

    import static java.lang.System.out;


    /** method to list type parameters */
    void listTypes( Object o ) {
    Class c = o.getClass();
    TypeVariable[] tv = c.getTypeParameters();
    if (tv.length != 0) {
    out.format(" ");
    for (TypeVariable t : tv)
    out.format("%s ", t.getName());
    } else {
    out.format(" -- No Type Parameters --%n%n");

    I didn't test that, but most of it I got from that link I gave you. It
    should work.
