In this video, Doug Winnie shows how to change elements in an array, and introduces the ArrayList. The ArrayList is a more flexible type of collection that allows you to add elements with the add method, and remove elements with the remove method.
- [Narrator] When you create a collection of values…you will undoubtedly want to change them at some point.…However, there are some limitations with arrays…that can make them difficult to work with.…Once you define the number of elements of an array…it's fixed and it can't be resized.…You can change the elements within them,…but that's about it.…Let's go ahead and create a new array by saying it's…going to be a string array, called my array.…We'll set it equal to a new string array,…and we'll put in some names.…
Doug,…Mike,…Janet,…and Matt.…Then we can output this to the console.…We'll do that using a for loop.…for (String element : myArray)…Since we're only doing one line,…we can put this all in a single row.…System.out.println(element)…Go ahead and run the program…to see the output from the loop.…
When you create an array, you can't create…new elements after it's created.…The array is limited to the initial number…you define at the beginning.…We can change one of the elements, however.…We can do that by accessing the array object,…
