Warnings in Generics

Hi All

Does assigning generic types to a raw type generate unchecked warnings or is it the other way round?

I am really confused about this as Whizlabs has mentioned the above statement while the document on Generics by Gilad Bracha states that assigning a raw type to a generic type generates unchecked warnings.

Appreciate a clarification on this.

Thanks in advance.

Why not write some code to verify whether warning messages are or are not generated?
