This



produces

getp.java:10: incompatible types
found : java.util.Enumeration<capture of ?>
required: java.util.Enumeration<java.lang.String>
Enumeration<String> e = p.propertyNames();

while this



compiles ok.

What is the problem?

Class Properties was from before the time that generics were added to Java. So the method propertyNames() returns a raw Enumeration, and not an Enumeration<String>.
