References stored in Vectors are implicitly upcast to type Object, so when you pull them back out, you need to explicitly downcast them back to their correct type.

And just to nitpick...

It is strongly recommended you add brackets {} around the statements in your for() loop. Especially since you may need to add a line to cast them (although not required).

Second, don't use Vector, use ArrayList. Vector is used only when synchronization is required which can still be accomplished using ArrayLists with synchronized access methods.

Finally, if this is a public method you should probably check that the Vector itself is not null unless you've got very good encapsulation for modifying it.

Could you post the code that the system is throwing the error on, specifically the lines surrounding "vecConnection.add(out);"?

If you are using Java 1.5, you should use generics when you create the array.

As Scott indicated, this is related to generics in Java 1.5. Collections now use generics to safeguard the types of references they contain, and the compiler is simply warning you of potentially unsafe operations.

In this case, your type is not just Vector. It's Vector<PrintWriter>. For example...

Vector<PrintWriter> myWriters = new Vector<PrintWriter>();

(The message you posted above looks like what you would get after recompiling with -Xlint to show details of the warnings.)
