Reading Time: 4 minutes Variance is the correlation of subtyping relationships of complex types and the subtyping relationships of their component types. Scala supports variance annotations of the type parameters of generic traits and classes.
Reading Time: 3 minutes As we have already discussed in my last blog about the Type Parameterization concepts like Generics, Generic classes, and Variance. So to follow up, in this blog we’ll be discussing type bounds. Type Bounds: How can we create type parameter restrictions? To create them we make use of Scala type bounds. In Scala, Type Bounds are restrictions on Type Parameters or Type Variable. By using Type Continue Reading
Reading Time: 5 minutes In this blog, we will explore types of variances in Scala. In-variance Co-variance Contra-variance First, let’s talk about Types in Scala. scala> import java.util.ArrayList scala> var ref1: Any = “Hi” ref1: Any = Hi scala> var ref2: String = “Hi” ref2: String = Hi scala> ref1 = ref2 ref1: Any = Hi In the above example, ref1 is of type Any and ref2 is of Continue Reading
