Hi All,

I am preparing for SCJP 5. In K&B's SCJP book, I read in Generics & Collection s topic, that most of the java developers and critics are not like the Generics added in Java 1.5!

Now my doubt is, Will the exam cover more questions from Generics or not?
.

Thanks in Advance.

Most of the developers said so!

You can look for arguments on the web about the developer community's reaction to the introduction of generics into Java.

I love generics! I happen to be on the same chapter myself. I don't have my book beside me right now but is it on chapter 6? I think the last half chapters (6-10) are the most exciting parts and would be given a lot of focus on the exam.

Generics Rock!

I just started using them at work, and they make things so much easier!

Thanks,
Richard

That actually depends. If you use it extensively with the loads of 'exceptions to rules' that it comes with, it can actually be a pain. I find the the following to be the most useful

Arraylist <bla> list = new ArrayList<bla>();

That helps reduce run time errors a touch, but I just dont feel compelled to use it for any other purpose.
