As we know, List is an interface. So, which class does Arrays.asList() return exactly?

It doesn't matter. All you know is that whatever the class is, it implements the List interface.

Thanks Rajasekar, that was helpful.

No wonder, the changes(using set()) made to the List view that is returned from Arrays.asList() is reflected in the original array.

But, if a new ArrayList object if created from Arrays.asList() :

and changes are made to this(using set()), it is not reflected in the original array.
