    Can you use the Random class?

    Random (Java Platform SE 6)

    You could put the numbers into an ArrayList<Integer>, say called "yourList", and then call Collections.shuffle(yourList). Then each time you need a number, check that the list isn't empty (size > 0), remove the 0th item and use it.
