Presentation: "Wildcards in Java"
Monday 16:15 - 17:00, Public Room
Among the many enhancements to the Java Programming Language scheduled
for the coming JDK1.5 (Tiger) release, generics is probably the most
significant. Generics allow classes to be parameterized with types, so
that e.g. the Collection libraries can now be used without the need
In the design of complex object structures, e.g. by use of design
patterns, traditional parameterized classes are often unnecessarily
rigid. Wildcards are a novel approach to enrich generics with the
flexibility required by modern object-oriented programming in Java.
Wildcards are the result of a fruitful collaboration between Sun
Microsystems and the University of Aarhus.
In the talk we introduce the wildcard mechanism in Java generics, and
examine realistic examples of its use.
