Compile Xlint Errors
Hi Guys,

I am in the process of following a tutorial from the head first JSP & servlets book and i have got stuck. Hopefully someone will be able to help me.

I have copied this code from the book

When i come to compile the code i get this message in the terminal

After i recompile with -Xlint i get these messages

Does anyone have any idea where i am going wrong?

They aren't errors but warnings.

If you read this part of the Java Tutorial I'm sure you'll get a better understanding.
Hi Ben,


public List getBrands(String color) {


public List<String> getBrands(String color) {


List brands = new ArrayList();


List<String> brands = new ArrayList<String>();

and your warnings will vanish. The problem has to do with generics, which are introduced
since Java Version 1.5

Kind regards
Thank you worked like a charm.
