Generic Java (Generic Java or GJ) is a programming language that is a superset of Java which adds support for generic programming. It was designed by Gilad Bracha, Martin Odersky, David Stoutamire, and Philip Wadler to offer developers a smoother transition and better Java compatibility than the Pizza programming language, previously created by Odersky and Wadler.

Generic Java was incorporated, with the addition of wildcards, into the official Java language version J2SE 5.0.
