Java Guru needed -- compiler bug?

 private void method(Collection<String> s)
        // Nothing

    private void caller()
       // Complies fine
        Collection<String> s = Collections.emptyList();

       // Doesn't compile -- gives error message
       // The method method(Collection<String>) in the type Import is
not applicable for the arguments
       //  (List<Object>)

What's going on here?   The two statements look identical to me...

I'm not going to pretend to be a guru, but here goes :)

It's a generic method:

public static final <T> List<T> emptyList()

In the second call there is no way to determine the type of the generic
parameter, so you get a list of Object.

2. is GLSurfaceView life-cycle the same as Activity that own it ?

i'v found one solution, the key point is that if you destroy
GLSurfaceView before it stops running,it will raise errors(not
i have used to destroy the GLSurfaceView immediately followed by
GLSurfaceView.onPause , the GLSurfaceView hasn't stoped runnnig at
that time ,and not destroyed the EGL enviroment(something like
EGLSurface,EGLContext...and so on).

so i use "postDelayed" to do that things about 50 millisecond later.
it works well!

but that seems not a very good approach for me ,because 50 millisecond
is just a probably estimation. maybe 30 or 20 could also work .
