To be implemented by test generators of things that can contain elements. Such things include both java.util.Collection and java.util.Map; since there isn't an established collective noun that encompasses both of these, 'container' is used.

George van den Driessche
public interface TestContainerGenerator<T, E> {
Returns the sample elements that this generate populates its container with.
  SampleElements<E> samples();

Creates a new container containing the given elements. TODO: would be nice to figure out how to use E... or E[] as a parameter type, but this doesn't seem to work because Java creates an array of the erased type.
  T create(Object ... elements);

Helper method to create an array of the appropriate type used by this generator. The returned array will contain only nulls.
  E[] createArray(int length);

Returns the iteration ordering of elements, given the order in which they were added to the container. This method may return the original list unchanged, the original list modified in place, or a different list.

This method runs only when is specified when creating the test suite. It should never run when testing containers such as java.util.HashSet, which have a non-deterministic iteration order.

  Iterable<E> order(List<E> insertionOrder);
