Only the second one doesn't compile?
How about these three?
01. Compiles, albeit with an "unchecked conversion" warning.
02. Does not compile.
03. Cut and pasted from the JavaDocs 1.6 API does not compile.
What gives? I want to assign to a List, because I do not want to write to implementation classes. I want to code to interfaces. Stooges, indeed!!
