This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
It's a really bad idea to name your classes after classes in the standard Java libraries - expecially ones that are commonly used. It just leads to confusion. So don't call your own class List. If you want to implement java.util.List, do that. If you don't, use a different name.
