Richard Eckart de Castilho commented on UIMA-5115:

It might be worth introducing pseudo-type-safe variations of these methods:

SelectFSs<T> type(Type uimaType);
SelectFSs<T> type(String fullyQualifiedTypeName);
SelectFSs<T> type(int jcasClass_dot_type);

These additional methods should allow the user to specify a built-in JCas type 
or CAS FS interface as boundary, e.g.

<NEW_TYPE> SelectFSs<NEW_TYPE> type(String fullyQualifiedTypeName, 
Class<NEW_TYPE> aBoundingType);

Usage example:

cas.select().type("my.Token", AnnotationFS.class);

Otherwise we'd probably be casting a lot from FeatureStructure to AnnotationFS.
