    When writing Java, remember it is not flexible. You, as the programmer, should be one to show flexibility. Then, cheat. For example, if you have control on the generated iterator, make a class which implements Iterator and Iterable. Delegate or inherit the methods of Iterator and do

    public Iterator iterator() {
        return this;

    Prety stupid, but it may work. For Enumerations, you'll have to write an adapter from enumerations to iterations (if you can't find one in the forest of classes available in the JDK). Of course, all of this has much more code that any of us would want to write, but it is hard to escape from that usually.

      Don't worry; I've never forgotten this. :)
