    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      javac accepts the following code:

      import java.util.*;

      interface Foo {}

      interface Bar<T extends Foo> extends Comparable<Bar<?>> {
          Comparator<Bar<? extends Foo>> DATE_TIME_ORDER = null;
          Comparator<Bar<?>> date = DATE_TIME_ORDER; // this shouldn't be accepted
      }

      accepting this code implies that '?' is equal to '? extends Foo'
