Hi while going through docs i found the following method
public static <K, V> boolean compare(Pair<K, V> p1, Pair<K, V> p2) {
        return p1.getKey().equals(p2.getKey()) &&
               p1.getValue().equals(p2.getValue());
    }
I am not able to understand why they have defined <K,V> infront of the return type boolean? how to understand this and what is the meaning of this?
