    Default Need help with creating average from vector

    Hi guys, I'm new here so please don't bite! :o

    I am developing a Network delay monitoring tool for my degree coursework, it works basically like a ping between two systems.

    The actual processing of the delay is finished, I used:

    Java Code:
    to acquire the system time in ms after transmission and again when the message is received back. I then subtracted the first from the second t1 - t0 to get a delay time :)

    I now want to implement an average function so the user can see the average delay time. To do this I am using a Vector. The problem is I cannot add a long variable to the Vector; or I do not know how to!

    My code for working the vector is as follows:

    Java Code:
    Vector<String> v = new Vector<String>(); 
    v.add(ans) // this ans is the delay time long variable I want to add.
    for(int i = 0; i < v.size(); i++) {
    	sum = sum + Integer.parseInt(v.get(i));
    System.out.println("sum = " + sum);
    when I compile I get the error:

    " cannot find symbol symbol : method add(long)
    location: class java.util.Vector<java.lang.String> v.add(ans);"

    I am really puzzled as what to do next so any help would really be appreciated!

    1) Why do you write Vector<String> ? You dont want to store String objects, you want to store Long objects or? So you have to write List<Long> v = new Vector<Long>();

    2) Why do you want to parse it to Integer? You mean Long.parseLong ? But if you change your code as I said in 1) you dont have to parse! v.get(i) = Long :)

    Default Thankyou!

    Thank you so much! I was using an online example and didn't really think about the parseInt, I really appreciate this it works perfectly now!! :D :D
