Just wondering if is at all possible to 'store' an object within an array?


At work (hence can't test it) and was just thinking about it, thought this would be a good question to ask people with a bit more experience.

cheers mate Studying Bachelors of Computing and the first two years are based on Java, then a year of C++. Kind of strange really, would've thought that C++ would be more dominant. I've done a lot of PHP in my time so OOP and procedural programming, although I'm not used to such a 'strict' language, so it's a nice change

Arrays unlike Collections can store anything which means: Objects and primitives .
The only problem which I see with arrays is the compulsion of knowing the size before when creating its Object but on the other hand Collections gives us a lot flexibility .

Why? It hasn't been, for some time now.
