Wildcard in generics

Wildcard:

Types of wildcard:

  1. Unbounded wildcard.
  2. Bounded wildcard.
    1. Upper bounded wildcard.
    2. Lower bounded wildcard.

Unbounded wildcard.is used for list of unknown types using ‘?’(Type is not bounded).
2. Bounded wildcard: is used for unknown bounded types using ‘?’ with extends or super keyword.
