Hi,
I have a rectangle class like:

public class MyRectangle
{
     int l, r, t, b;
}

because using the built in java one has doubles for the members instead of int and its really annoying to use with graphics drawing. How can I update it to just 'template' the type, something like:

public class MyRect<int>
{
     int l, r, t, b;
}
public class MyRect<double>
{
    double l, r, t, b;
}

etc?

Thanks

Which built-in Java class? The java.awt.Rectangle class uses ints.
