I purchased the Head First Java And i am into the array list topic already. There's an example named class DotCom where the author used private ArrayList<String> locationCells.

I tried the program but it came up with an error. Please tell me what i generated the ff error: setLocations(java.util.ArrayList<java.lang.Integer> i DotCome cannot be applied to (int [] )
newGame.setLocations(locations);

Here's the code:







I really think that the error is code int [] locations = { randomNum, randomNum + 1, randomNum + 2 }; because it's an integer and the arguments at the array list is a String.

Please help. Thanks!

int [] locations ... defines locations as an array of int.

public void setLocations(ArrayList<String> loc) ...
the args for setLocations is an object of the ArrayList<String> not an int array.

The compiler doesn't like that and complains.
When you call setLocations you must pass it an arg of the type specified in its declaration, otherwise you'll get a compile error.
