    Default Need Help on testing Code

    The following is the code that I have written so far for an assignment. I am having difficulty testing my methods so far. In the main method, I try to create a SimpleSet setA = new SimpleSet() but I keep getting an error. Can anyone help me? Thank you.

    	import java.util.*; 
    public class SimpleSet<K extends Comparable<? super K>>{ 
    	/* use SimpleSortedDictionary object to hold set items
       Note: Value is not needed, just set it to Boolean */ 
    	private DictionaryInterface<K, Boolean> items; 
    	/* default constructor */ 
    	public SimpleSet() {
    		items = new SimpleSortedDictionary<K, Boolean>();
    	/* Adds a given object to the set. If the given object already exists in the set, 
    	    return false; otherwise, return true */ 
    	public boolean add(K item){
    		boolean result;
    		if(items.add(item, true) != null) 
    			result = true;
    		}else result = false;
    		return result;
    	/* Removes a given object from the set. */ 
    	public void remove(K item){
    	/* Sees whether the set contains a given object. */ 
    	public boolean contains(K item){
    		return this.items.contains(item);
    	/* Clears all objects from the set. */ 
    	public void clear(){
    	/* Gets the number of objects in the set. */ 
    	public int getSize(){
    		return items.getSize();
    	/* Returns an iterator to the set. */ 
    	public Iterator<K> getIterator(){
    		return items.getKeyIterator();
            /* may define tests here */ 
    	public static void main(String args[]) {
    		SimpleSet setA = new SimpleSet<K>();
    		int five = 5;
    		//SimpleSet setA = new SimpleSet();
    		//SimpleSet setA = new SimpleSortedDictionary();
    		//Integer five = new Integer(5);
    } // end SimpleSet

    You need to use the generic parameters to specify a type which is Comparable. Objects by default are not Comparable.

    SimpleSet<String> stringSet = new SimpleSet<String>(); // String implements the Comparable interface

    When I try to execute this:

    public static void main(String args[]) {
    SimpleSet<String> setA = new SimpleSet<String>();
    String one = "one";

    I get this error:

    printException in thread "main" java.lang.Error: Unresolved compilation problems:
    The constructor SimpleSortedDictionary.Entry(K, V, null) is undefined
    Type mismatch: cannot convert from Object to V

    at SimpleSortedDictionary.add(SimpleSortedDictionary. java:34)
    at SimpleSortedDictionary.add(SimpleSortedDictionary. java:1)
    at SimpleSet.add(SimpleSet.java:18)
    at SimpleSet.main(SimpleSet.java:73)
