      Please take a look at:

      Add a utility method to convert a Collection to a List, returning the argument if it is a List subclass itself. Make the return type Unmodified for consistency.since if the data comes in as a non-List class, then a copy is made, so modifying the returned collection would not affect the original source, whereas if a List is passed in, modification to the returned List would impact the original source.
