Subject [jira] [Created] (SIS-95) Explicitly specify Typed extends Object parameters in FallbackConverterTest
Date Tue, 02 Apr 2013 20:29:17 GMT
Chris A. Mattmann created SIS-95:

             Summary: Explicitly specify Typed extends Object parameters in FallbackConverterTest
                 Key: SIS-95
             Project: Spatial Information Systems
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Utilities
            Reporter: Chris A. Mattmann
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 0.3

I found this bug by trying to open up the latest version of SIS inside of Eclipse. Per [~desruisseaux]:

Eclipse doesn't use the Sun/Oracle javac compiler. It uses its own compiler instead, which
doesn't behave exactly the same way. I have seen 3 or 4 similar situations in the past, where
the Eclipse and Sun compilers were in disagreement. However I do not remember having seen
a case where the Eclipse compiler was right...

In this particular case, the Eclipse compiler complains about that line:

c = FallbackConverter.merge(c, new StringConverter.Long());

The 'merge' method expect two arguments of type:

   ObjectConverter<S, ? extends T>
   ObjectConverter<S, ? extends T>

The types that we are actually providing are:
   ObjectConverter<String, ?>
   ObjectConverter<String, Long>

If we understand <?> as synonymous to <? extends Object>, the above is
right as far as I can see. But maybe Eclipse wants it to be specified
explicitly. could you try to edit line 63 please, replacing the
<String,?> by <String,? extends Object>.
