Because arrays don't have iterators.

The .iterator() method is on the Collections API, of which arrays are not.

Arrays don't have iterators. It is accessed via an index to the element that you want. Furthermore, you can also simply "iterate" through an array via the for-each loop.

Arrays have 11 methods (10 inherited from the Object class and 1 overridden from the Object class) 1 (public final) field (=length) and that is it. They are also implicitly Cloneable and Serializable. It says so in the Jave® Language Specification, so woe betide anybody who tries to implement Java® arrays with more members
