Hi all,

I am really new to Eclipse and Java in general, but I encountered the following behaviour and don't know how to explain / fix it properly:

With this small piece of code:

import java.util.*;

public class testClass {

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		List<String> list = new ArrayList<String>();
	}

}


I get the following Eclipse error:

The type ArrayList is not generic; it cannot be parameterized with arguments <String>

If I change the import on the top to be:

import java.util.List;
import java.util.ArrayList;


So why isn't this piece of code valid with wildcard import?

I actually figured this out already. Had accidentally left an override of ArrayList in the project thus the normal import did not work properly. Removed override -> Everything worked as should Smile
