Can't sort in Java 1.5 with generics

I've been getting odd compile errors when trying to sort while using
generics.

I have the following code:

static final List<Class> levelList;
static {
Vector<Class> v = new Vector<Class>() ;

v.add(myClass1. class);
v.add(myClass2. class);
v.add(myClass3. class);

Collections.sor t(v);
levelList = Collections.unm odifiableList(v );
}

which causes the compile error:

C:\dev\cvs.kitf ox.com\scarlet\ src\com\kitfox\ scarlet\levels\ ScarletLevelLis t.java:34:
cannot find symbol
symbol : method sort(java.util. List<java.lang. Class>)
location: class java.util.Colle ctions
Collections.sor t((List<Class>) v);
However, if I change the sort command to

Collections.sor t((List)v);

Things work. Is there a way to write the above code so that it
compiles correctly with generics?

Here is the "lead C# architect" attempting to impugn C++ templates (bottom of the page). http://www.artima.com/intv/generics2.html (bottom of the page) (Full article begins at http://www.artima.com/intv/generics.html) I think every employee at Micrsoft must be required to take a class in "FUD marketing" before speaking with anyone outside the company. I think the term "money oriented programming" is suitable here.

Java programmers seem to always be whining about how confusing and overly complex C++ appears to them. I would like to introduce an explanation for this. Is it possible that Java programmers simply aren't smart enough to understand C++? This is not merely a whimsical hypothesis. Given my experience with Java programmers --- the code they write and the conversations they have --- Occam's Razor points to this explanation. For example,...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
