I don't think extends wildcard would let you add "anything" to the list. That's something I already know ;)

Dieter Quickfend wrote:Got another one for you;

What could you pass to the List if the reference type was "List<? extends IOException>"?

A List with any class that that extends IOException?

For example, ArrayList<FileNotFoundException> should work this time.
Got ya. Thanks once again for your quick reply.

which types is this ArrayList guaranteed to be able to take as parameters?

Thanks for your reply. I would expect it to take an Exception or even an Object as its parameters but not somthing that's subtype of IOException. I thought the super wildcard is there to impose a restriction on the list to not allow any sub types of IOException. FileNotFoundException and EOFException are subtypes of IOException. Aren't they?

For example, the following code doesn't work and I cmpletely understand why it doesn't.

So, I still fail to understand why the code in my first post works.
Can anyone please explain why the following code works?

Something strange is going on here. I don't really understand how FileNotFoundException or EOFException can be added to the list even though they are not super type of IOException.

I appreciate your help.

Hi Shawn,
Your code seems logically inconsistent (and kinda gross too). Here's how I would write it.

A recently published survey result shows how US ranks when it comes to maternity leave and attaining the benefits related to maternity leave.

Check this out.

Ofcourse, there is no harm in familiarizing oneself with interview questions but I dont think it's a good idea to do that before understanding the subject matter.

He might be new in this field. Thats why he asked such questions. Dear Navin first try to find out answers yourself.

So, you expect the beginners to start with interview questions first? And, you advise them to find out the answers of those questions by themselves?

I have one in hand, one offer waiting[I expect to hear from them soon] and two big companies Im tempting to apply to. What to do?

Share some tips please.


Hi Tina,
So you've finally got back to India. How was your job searching experience in UK? Did you actually manage to get a job over there?
I know these are kinda personal questions but I am just curious. You don't have to answer if you don't want to.

Hi Devaki,
The following is extracted from one of Mark Herschberg's posts. The links mentioned will show you how to write a resume which is preferred by the recruiters.

I don't have time to do a lot of searching for good resumes (and obviously can't post candidates resumes without their permission) but here's a quick example from online; here's another. I'm not saying these are the pinnacle of resumes, I don't even like the formatting, but the level of detail per job is appropriate. You might be able to double the level of detail per job (read: double the text), if you held it a long time, or did a number of tasks, but I wouldn't go much beyond that.

To learn more about what to include in your resume and what to not read read the first few posts in this thread.
