I recently build the Java EE 5 Tutorial's coffeebreak application from command line and deloyed it to Sun's Glassfish V2 application server. So far so good.

Then I created the coffeebreak modules again, this time in Eclipse. Everything is fine, except one thing that makes me wonder. There is one line in code where it says:

List<PriceItemBean> priceItems = priceList.getPriceItems();


public PriceItemBean[] getPriceItems() {return priceItems;}

In Eclipse I get an error: Type mismatch: cannot convert from PriceItemBean[] to List<PriceItemBean>

How could that example run in the first place

P.S.: The example are from RetailPriceList.java and PriceListBean.java of the Java EE 5 Tutorial
