Type parameter hides visible type

Reports type parameters that have the same names as the visible types in the current scope. Such parameter names may be confusing.


abstract class MyList<T> extends AbstractList<T> { private List<T> elements; // type parameter 'T' hides type parameter 'T' public <T> T[] toArray(T[] array) { return elements.toArray(array); } }
