I want to know why the following Collection<E> interface methods, accept Collection<?> as the parameter and not Collection<? super E>
boolean containsAll(Collection<?> c)
boolean removeAll(Collection<?> c)
boolean retainAll(Collection<?> c)
If I create a Collection<
>, does invoking c.containsAll(m) (where m is Collection<Map>
make sense? :roll: I dont think so. Could someone explain?
