    Default Using Restricted Generics - SOLVED


    I am using generics in a class that I am creating and want to ensure that the only type of object which is passed in is one that implements comparable. Up until this point I was under the impression that

    public Class MyClass <T Comparable>{

    is the correct syntax to do so, but it seems I was mistaken. Would someone be so kind as to correct me?

    Thank you!
