             Bug #: 859
           Summary: javac to strict when checking cast
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: IcedTea
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: x86_64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: IcedTea7
        AssignedTo: ahughes at redhat.com
        ReportedBy: kdaniel at redhat.com
                CC: unassigned at icedtea.classpath.org

I have a field declaration

private ArrayList<HashSet<EventRequest>> fRequests;

which is then utilized by a method that calls

new ArrayList<StepRequest>((Collection<? extends StepRequest>)

StepRequest extends EventRequest.

A cast from HashSet<EventRequest> to Collection<? extends StepRequest> is a
valid one, but javac complains about it.
