    Default ArrayList problem.

    I have a Box class, Bag class and a Apple class .
    the Bag class contains an ArrayList.

    BAG CLASS
    Java Code:
    ArrayList<Apple> apples = new ArrayList<Apple>();
    
    public int getSize() {
    int i = apples.getSize();
    return i;
    }
    BOX CLASS
    Java Code:
    Bag.apples.getSize();
    I want to getSize() the number of apples by asking the bag class.

    How do i bring the array over to box class to check the getSize() method? Because I know I can't use 2 calls.
    If I Bag.getSize, its asking the whole class (non static...) but I also don't want to create a new array to get back 0.

    use an instance of the Bag class rather than "Bag" in that call and remove ".apples" from that call.

    Java Code:
    Bag b;
    
    b.getSize();
    So if I do that, b can identify the Arraylist automatically?
    Thanks, Its complied.

    Bag has a "getSize()" method (according to that code), and that method calls "size()" on the instance variable, so, yeah. I mean, that's what all that is for, after all.
