What on Earth is this?

So I mistakenly wrote the following code:


    private <List>ContentFetcher getContentFetchers() {
        return null;
    }

instead of

    private List <ContentFetcher> getContentFetchers() {
        return null;
    }

and guess what Eclipse moaned about? Nothing, absolutely nothing. Code completion shows that the method returns a ContentFetcher, so what does "" do? Apparantly nothing :)

Weird ;)

OK, go on then smarty pants and tell me what it is doing :)

    The first one is a generic method – List is actually a parameter. Good ol’ generics ;-)
