Object obj = Boolean.class;

Could any one explain me how this statement is valid?

Whats the problem with that,
the statement Boolean.class object of type class Class
and since Object is the super class of every object. So this has to be valid

To continue the theme:
Boolean.class IS-A Class<Boolean>
Boolean.class IS-A Class<? extends Boolean>
Boolean.class IS-A Class<? extends Comparable<Boolean>>
Boolean.class IS-A Class<? extends java.io.Serializable>
Boolean.class IS-A Class<? extends Object> (redundant, see below)
Boolean.class IS-A Class<? super Boolean>
Boolean.class IS-A Class<?>
X<? extends Object> is redundancy and should be replaced with X<?> (for all X)
