i was trying this code

Bill Jones wrote:
main:
ArrayList<Integer> note = new ArrayList<Integer>();
int[] myArray = new int[]{ 58,63,67,72,70,63,62,63 };
note = initArrayList(myArray);

method:
public ArrayList<Integer> initArrayList(int[] a) {
ArrayList<Integer> list = new ArrayList<Integer>();
for (int i : a) {
list.add(i);
} //close for loop
return list;
} //close initArrayList method



and i got this message from the debugger:

generics are not supported in -source 1.4
(use -source 5 or higher to enable generics)
public ArrayList<Integer> initArrayList(int[] a) {



what does it mean?
