I deleted my own post immediately after posting it as I noticed Campbell was faster than me and my post didn't add anything new to Campbell's.
The post was online for less than a minute. You were lucky to see it.
It is now restored.

This post will disappear in 3 days.

The method is defined as asList(T... a). It is not defined for primitive types.

If you pass int[] into it, the whole array would be treated as the sole element of the created list.

Now it is.

ras oscar wrote:java.lang.Object

I know from process of elimination that the correct import statement is

What do the 3 lines above that refer to? If I instead entered

import java.lang.Object

would I get the desired class?

This is the inheritance tree of class.

It means that: extends extends extends java.lang.Object.

You need to import only these classes that you want to refer to by name.
You don't need to import classes from java.lang package.

But it is a real thing. It would import a class io from package Java. You would need to make sure such class is available at compile time. And if it doesn't exist you can create it.

Note that Java identifiers are case sensitive. Names and are not the same thing.

As you probably had in mind, writing import; is perfectly legal as far as the language syntax is concerned. The only problem is that the class named doesn't exist.

You guessed correctly. The thread you want to notify needs to own the lock to be notified.

saurabhmehta mehta wrote:So is the notify() call being made only after the entire loop is over?

The call on notifiy() is made several times in the DemoThread. But the call only has an effect on the notified thread when it gets the lock.
Welcome to the Ranch!

You can iterate over map.entrySet() and append key+value to a String (possibly StringBuilder).

Do you care about the order of characters in the output?
If you do, would it be the order of first appearance or alphabetical order? Or any other?

For xxxaddb, do you want to get x3a1d2b1 or a1b1d2x3?

Welcome to the Ranch!

java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: String index out of range: 0
This means you are trying to get a character from a String atindex 0 but this index is "out of bounds".
An index is out of bounds if it is negative (not the case here) or >= length of the String.
The only way index 0 can be out of bounds is when a String is empty.

One of the Strings in your example is empty. It is numbers (if you modified it somewhere) or passwordCreated.

Nitpick alert!

Actually this code won't compile as FileNotFoundException is a subclass of IOException.
So this can and should be shortened to:

We can't sort a HashMap because HashMaps aren't meant to be sorted.
Complaining about it is kind of like complaining that cars can't fly.

import aquarium.* imports all classes from aquarium package.
It does not import anything from aquarium.jellies package.

You need to understand that aquarium and aquarium.jellies are completely different packages.
The class aquarium.jellies.Water doesn't belong to the aquarium package.

Well, no.
A public static final String would be inlined.

This prints:

This prints:
Instance created

This is mandated by JLS:

JLS SE 9 in 13.1 wrote:A reference to a field that is a constant variable (§4.12.4) must be resolved at compile time to the value V denoted by the constant variable's initializer.

If such a field is static, then no reference to the field should be present in the code in a binary file, including the class or interface which declared the field.

But this is only the case with primitives and Strings.
The equals() methods in arrays is inherited from Object class.
That means it checks objects identity (like using == operator).

If you want to compare contents of arrays use Arrays.equals method.

You need to provide fully qualified names of classes.
