I'm getting the warning as: [unchecked] unchecked call to add(E) as a member of the raw type java.util.List

Kindly throw some light on this.

That's because List is a generic type, but you aren't using generics. If you change List to List<String> everywhere the warnings will go away. Remember they're only warnings...but you should always use the generic version (unless you have to work with legacy libraries that don't).
