I'm trying to write some generic code that simplifies things for other developers in my company.
I'm currently getting stuck returning a list of generic items from a REST web service
the getList1(..) method functions perfectly, but the moment I take the concrete class references out and try and replace them with generics ( getList.(..) ) i get the following exception from my webservice:
com.sun.jersey.api.client.ClientHandlerException: A message body reader for Java type, interface java.util.List, and MIME media type, application/xml, was not found
am I declaring my generic code incorrectly?

Apparently the problem is around type erasures...
anyway the solution i found was to use an Array instead of a List
