This method is throwing an java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException
when I unit test it. It comes from the line with the list.add(inList);


Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Tom

The Arrays.asList() does not return a fully functional list... Quoted from the Java Docs...

Returns a fixed-size list backed by the specified array.



Since the list that is return is backed by the specified array, it can't change in size. This means add and remove operations do not work.

One possible way to fix this is with the following:

This will create a new List that you CAN modify. It also adds all the elements from the List that is created by the asList() method.
