I'm a bit confused by generics and reflection in Java. I'm trying to get the type of an object and use it as the parameter for a generic class, but I can't figure out how to do it.


public class TestNumeral<T>
{
//Should return a TestNumeral<TestNumeral<T>>
public Object Sucessor()
{
return new TestNumeral<this.getType()>();
}
}
