arrays Create a basic array in Java


Example

public class CreateAnArray{    
    public static void main(String[] args){
        // Creates a new array of Strings with a length of 3
        // This length cannot be changed later
        String[] myStringArray = new String[3];
        myStringArray[0] = "Hello"; // Java array indicies start at 0
        myStringArray[1] = "World";
        myStringArray[2] = "!"; // The array is now full
        try{
            myStringArray[3] = "This will cause an error."; // Index 3 requires an array 
            // of size 4 or greater
        }
        catch(ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException out){
            System.out.println("Java arrays cannot be expanded.");
        }
        // Print out "Hello World!" to the console
        System.out.println(myStringArray[0]+" "+myStringArray[1]+" "+myStringArray[2]);
    }
}
