Hi

The spec says that the get method of CMR field's should return Collection or Set. I am hoping that means any subclass of Collection or subclass of Set. So returning a List object should be OK, assuming the get method has declared return type as Collection or Set.

Thanks.

Hi Mini,

Collection & Set are interfaces. End of the day, you've to choose an implementing class to hold your objects. So any implementing classes of Collection or Set should work.

HTH.
