Merrick Schincariol wrote a detailed article about what Java’s generics lack that C++’s have. This really doesn’t surprise me a whole lot, given that the C++ folks are fine with multiple inheritance and the Java folks thought that was too complicated.

As Merrick points out, though, at least Java collections will be less painful to use.
