Hi Folks,

when I tried to compile the following code with


it gives the following message in the dos prompt:

Note: used unchecked or unsafe operations.
Note: Recompile with -Xlint:unchecked for details.

Then when I compiled with the following command:

javac -Xlint:unchecked

it gives the following error messages:

javac: invalid flag: -xlint:unchecked
Usage: javac <options> <sourcefiles>
use -help for a list of possible options.

Could you guys PLEASE throw me some light on this annoying messages PLEASE.

Thanks & regards
