java api object construction mental problems, and inconsistencies


sam detweiler (12.5k6188201) | asked Feb 05 '14, 5:33 p.m.
 I am still having mental problems with the object construction model. 

why doesn't new just work?  
can't you wrapper all this blahblahblahClass.ITEM_TYPE.createItem(); 
(which doesn't work for Iflow* objects anyhow)
into the class constructor to save everyone nine million lines of code?  and minimize the learning complexity.

Sam,

this stuff is based on EMF, which uses factory classes and the like.  Most of the interfaces etc are generated. EMF does not provide public constructors. I am assuming that this is the reason.
