Re: Compiling Error (not Present in Eclipse) with Generics (requestfactory related interface)

Hi all,

I can't figure this out, haven't found anything on the interwebs, and it's really, really getting to me. I have the following interface:

public interface PersistedClassRC<P extends EntityProxy, N extends Serializable> {
Request<P> save(P entityProxy,int version);
Request<Void> delete(P entityProxy);
Request<P> findById(N id);

Now in Eclipse there are no errors, no warnings and I can run in Devmode just fine. However when I compile it I get the following error:

.../ error: The type N cannot be used here
    [javac]     Request<P> findById(N id);

I'm using Java 1.6.0_30 but have also tried it on 1.7.0_05 and 1.7.0_21 and all yield the same error. Is there something I'm not seeing, is this illegal? Please any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

Looks like issue 6794
