Hi

This is my source code at the moment:

public class Reihung <Schluessel, E extends Beschluesselt<Schluessel>>{

protected E [] sammlung;

public int suchen (Schluessel suchSchluessel) {
for (int i = 0; i < sammlung.length; i++) {
if (sammlung[i] != null && sammlung[i].getSchluessel() == suchSchluessel)
return i;
}
return -1;
}

public static void main(String[] args) {

//TODO: Sammlung anlegen
}
}

I want to create a collection (sammlung = collection). Thus, the main method is static, but the field sammlung is not static. I need to instantiate an object within the main method. How can I do it?

Regards, Urs

Hi Urs,

First of all, you should probably UseCodeTags. It will make it more likely that people are going to help you out.

Now, in order to use your methods, you need an instance of Reihung. First you need to decide what Object you're going to use as a key. If it is a String, you use:
Where X is a subtype of Beschluesselt.

Take notice, Schluessel may be a nice descriptive name, but it is misleading, because it implies it is an existing class or interface. For generic parameters, we use single letter names. A better class declaration would be:

Then I get the error message: X cannot be resolved to a typ. What do I have to change?
