    Default Generic array

    I have an array and want to make it generic. Its size is 10 and I want it to either contain int values or string values. Array type depends on the user's selection at runtime.

    Is this possible?

    You can create an object array. If you use the auto boxing feature you can just put any object in the array.

    Java Code:
    Object[] data = new Object[2];
    data[0] = 10;
    data[1] = "hello";
    Is this help you?

    public class Testing
    {

    public static void main(String args[])
    {
    Integer i1=new Integer(45);//Integer object
    Double d1=new Double(45.567);//double object
    String s1=new String("agsd");//string object
    Calc c1=new Calc();//object of the class
    ArrayList a1= new ArrayList();
    a1.add("45");// u can insert direct values also like this
    a1.add("a");
    a1.add("4de5");
    a1.add(45);
    a1.add(45.56);
    a1.add('a');
    a1.add('4');
    a1.add("45.79");
    a1.add(i1);a1.add(d1);a1.add(s1);
    a1.add(c1);

    System.out.println(""+a1);


    }
    }
