I suggest not to do that, so everyone can see
the entire subject line.

I have a class called Device that instantiates another class DbMoney
in this manner:


  return new DbMoney( money, hardware.getName() );


Object() in java.lang.Object cannot be applied to (my.IMoney,
       return new DbMoney( money, hardware.getName() )

Q) My arguments to the DbMoney constructor match that of its declared
method parameters.

Do they? Your code snippets do not support
that, or more accurately, if we had an SSCCE*,
we could confirm that for ourselves.

..So that can't be the problem. What am I doing
wrong ?

I am not sure, but if you supply an
SSCCE of your current code, that shows
the same compilation error, I might be
able to assist further.
