Array to Collection


In this example we are converting values of an array into collection.

List  interface is a member of the Java Collection Framework and extends Collection interface. List interface is an ordered collection which follows insertion order, typically allow duplicate elements. The List interface provides a special iterator, called ListIterator for insertion, replacement and  bi-directional access. 
The Arrays class contains various methods for manipulating arrays (e.g. sorting and searching etc.) and extends the Object class. The Iterator class allows access to the elements of a collection.

Methods used:
This method is used to get more elements. If the element at the next position is found then returns true otherwise throws an exception.

next(): This method returns the next element in the iteration.

asList(Object[] a): This method acts as a bridge between array and collection. This method converts array into Arrays by internally using  Colletion.toArray() method .

The code of the program is given below:

import java.util.Arrays;
import java.util.List;
import java.util.Iterator;
public class ArraysToCollection{
    public static void main(String[] args){
    String[] array = {"Java""Struts""JSP""J2EE"};
    List list = Arrays.asList(array);
    Iterator iterator = list.iterator();
    System.out.println("\nThe values into Array");
    while (iterator.hasNext()){

The output of the program is given below:

C:\rajesh\kodejava>javac ArraysToCollection.java
C:\rajesh\kodejava>java ArraysToCollection
The values into Array
