I couldn't figure out difference between type parameter and parametrized type.
thanks

Have you tried the Java Tutorials? Try the second section about types.

The definitive document on generics can be found here. It's not an easy read, but well worth the effort.

A parameterized type is a type that has a type parameter.

Look, for example, at List<T> - List is the parameterized type, and T is its type parameter.
