Hi everyone,

javac accepts the following code:

import java.lang.annotation.ElementType;
import java.lang.annotation.Target;
@interface Ann { }
class A<T> {}
public class App extends A<@Ann App.Data> {//<--
    public static class Data { }
    public static void main(String[] args) {

though fails to compile static List<@Ann App.Data> l;

Looks like A<@Ann App.Data> should also be a compile error?
