What kind of object does the JIRA Permissions.VIEW_VOTERS_AND_WATCHERS applies to?

The Api is ambiguous:

ComponentAccessor.getPermissionsManager().hasPermission(Permissions.,VIEW_VOTERS_AND_WATCHERS, GenericValue, user);


What is the java type of 2nd parameter (GenereciValue) ?

If you're using this call as documented, it really is a GenericValue - older versions of JIRA used this a lot before the developers wrote proper objects for things.  It will be a GenericValue that really contains a Project.  

The call is completely deprecated though, you should be using .hasPermissions, unless you're coding for a really old version of JIRA.

As voters and watchers is a permission that applies to issues within the project, that's what it is about - it's checking if the user has access to do that in the project.
