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()>();
