It hasn't got any more meaning that that. It is the closing part of the pair of brackets starting with the corresponding <. It acts as a delimiter in the Java® grammar. As with any sort of bracketing, <...> pairs can nest inside one another.
In parameterized types, you read the angle brackets as "of", so List<String> is read as "List of arrays of strings".

Henry, Campbell, Stephan,
I see it now. My eyes were messing around with me. I wasn't seeing that the <> were operating as a pair.
Sorry about that.
I kept looking at the > and thinking it was attached to the brackets.
