Understanding bit more of it

  • Eclipse: Oxygen
  • Java: 1.8

This article generalizes all the tutorials studied so far in the Collections framework. If we define the type of List as Object, we can add all kinds of Objects, such as the Integer, the String and even some characters. Therefore, all the defined techniques can work, except for sort which only works for elements with the same datatype.

In the following example, we replace the type of List from names to Object, which makes it more generic and allows the user to use any type of data without any restriction (Object is the parent class of all the classes).
