delete of a collection in explorer changes type

#1

accidently we used the option delete on a collection of type ArrayList<ObjectNode>. On doing so the type changed to List<ObjectNode>.

we are using explorer version 2.7.1_02

How can we change that back again ?

#2

Is it only an issue with the type of the field as shown by the Explorer or also the removal of content that you want to bring back (which is impossible with no backup if changes have been committed / saved).

It is only the type of the filed, don't care about the content

The Explorer may show a different type for a field with no value (null).

For example if the field type is List<ObjectNode> and the field value is an ArrayList<ObjectNode> instance then you see ArrayList<ObjectNode>, but if the value is null you see List<ObjectNode>.

Anyway, it is just the explorer display and should not have any further effect on the database itself.
