I think this is true -
The elements in a Java array can only be of primitive types, not objects. Why this is wrong?

hi:
arrays can hold objects and primitives. It depends on the decleration type
Object[] a = new Object[] //creats array of objects
int[] b = new int[] // creats array of integers
However, you can't assign a primitive type array to an Object type array.
b = a // compiler error
a = b // compiler error

and so on

If arrays could not hold Objects it would not be possible to create an array of Strings.
