hi all,
consider the following program:
import java.util.*;
public class VecNum
public static void main(String argv[])
Vector v = new Vector();
v.add(new Integer(1));
v.add(new Integer(2));
for(int i=0; i < v.size();i ++)//line1
Integer iw =(Integer) v.get(i);//line2



In the above program i have some queries:
1.why we need to use vector for wrapping all the integer values
2.what is the purpose of using line1,line2,line3
3.when i compile this program its generating errors

1. You're not using a Vector to wrap your integer values, you're using the Integer Wrapper class. This turns your int primitives into Objects so they can be added to the collection.

2. Lines 1, 2 and 3 retrieve the Integer objects from the Vector. Vector.size() returns the number of components in the Vector and get() retrieves the objects using their index (just like an array).

3. The code compiles and runs fine for me.

Hope this helps!
