(1) List<?> myList = new ArrayList<?>(); (2) ArrayList<?> myList = new ArrayList<?>();

I understand that with (1), implementations of the List interface can be swapped. It seems that (1) is typically used in an application regardless of need (myself I always use this).

I am wondering if anyone uses (2)?

Also, how often (and can I please get an example) does the situation actually require using (1) over (2) (i.e. where (2) wouldn't suffice..aside coding to interfaces and best practices etc.)
