Back to Question 9

Answer 8

False. This is an unsuccessful call to a generic method where the type of the object passed to the method isabove the upper bound on the specified generic type for the method. An attempt to compile the program results in the errorshown in Figure 11 below.

Figure 11 - Answer 8.
Q08.java:25: error: method runIt in class Foo cannot be applied to given types;aFoo.runIt(aFrame); ^required: T found: Framereason: inferred type does not conform to declared bound(s) inferred: Framebound(s): JFrame where T is a type-variable:T extends JFrame declared in method<T>runIt(T) 1 error

Back to Question 8

Answer 7

True. This is a successful call to a generic method where the generic type for the method is above (in the inheritance hierarchy) the type of object passed as a parameter.

Back to Question 7

Answer 6

One possible solution is shown in Listing 8 below.

Listing 8 - Answer 6.
/*File A06Foo.java ************************************************/import java.awt.*; public class A06Foo<T extends Component>{ private T param;public A06Foo(T param){this.param = param; }//end constructorpublic void runIt(){System.out.println("Object instantiated."); System.out.println(param.getClass());}//end runIt }//end A06Foo//=============================================//

Back to Question 6

Answer 5

One possible solution is shown in Listing 9 below where T extends Component . However, causing T to extend Window, Container, Component, or Object would all be valid solutions. The upper bound for T must be at or above thetype being passed as a type parameter in the inheritance hierarchy.

Listing 9 - Answer 5.
/*File A05Foo.java ************************************************/import java.awt.*; public class A05Foo<T extends Component>{ public void runIt(){System.out.println("Object instantiated."); }//end runIt}//end A05Foo //=============================================//

Back to Question 5

Answer 4

False. This program produces the compiler error shown in Figure 12 below. The problem is that the upper bound for the type parameter in the class named Foo(Frame) is below the type passed as a parameter (Window) in the attempt to instantiate an object of the class named Foo.

Figure 12 - Answer 4.
Q04.java:20: error: type argument Window is not within bounds of type-variable TFoo<Window>aFoo = new Foo<>(); ^where T is a type-variable: T extends Frame declared in class FooQ04.java:20: error: cannot infer type arguments for Foo<>; Foo<Window>aFoo = new Foo<>(); ^reason: no instance(s) of type variable(s) T exist so that Foo<T>conforms to Foo<Window>where T is a type-variable: T extends Frame declared in class Foo2 errors

Back to Question 4

Answer 3

True. A type variable with multiple bounds is a subtype of all the types listed in the bound. If one of the bounds is a class, it must be specified first.

Back to Question 3

Answer 2

False. The correct statement is:

"To declare a bounded type parameter, list the type parameter's name, followed by the extends keyword, followed by its upper bound. Note that, in this context, extends is used in a general sense to mean either "extends" (as in classes) or "implements" (as in interfaces)."

Back to Question 2

Answer 1

True. There may be times when you want to restrict the types that can be used as type arguments in a parameterized type. For example, a method that operates on numbers might only want to accept instances of Number or its subclasses. This is what bounded type parameters are for.

Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
