List<Base1> : A list that holds elements of type Base1
List<T extends Base1> : A list that holds elements that are either of type Base1 or they extends Base1.class

When applied to class:
In the following abstract class there are two infer types, notice that the H extends Model is used and that the H is used in the abstract class

When a concrete class extends the abstract class the H will be "replaced" by the Hotel class

It is a good design aproach when you have to deal with common functionalities but you have to work with different implementations

Google for Angelika Langer Java Generics FAQ; Angelika Langer's website is an excellent resource, but it has some things on not easy to understand. There is a good chance there will be a question just like what you asked.
Oh the stink of it! Smell my tiny ad!
