Description Jiri Prox 2007-08-14 14:12:22 UTC
Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 070814) Java: 1.5.0_12; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 1.5.0_12-b04 System: Linux
version 2.6.5-1.358 running on i386; UTF-8; en_US (nb) Userdir: /home/jp159440/.netbeans/dev

return type is said to be "? extends Runnable" for method get(int) but it can be only "Runnable"

List<? extends Runnable> list;
public void neco() {
