System.arrayCopy with generics

I am new to generics. Could anybody show me a class/method like System.arrayCopy that would work with any primitive arrays using generics?

    Unfortunately, nobody can provide you with a solution that uses generics because the current generics proposal in Java simply does not allow primitive types to be used in generic parameters. Only objects.

    Sorry. The answer is that it's impossible, unless the generics team at Sun decides to implement generics completely differently.
