    An arraylist is a list with an underlying array to hold it's elements. It resizes automatically, allowing you to add and remove items without worrying about going out of bounds. Check out the tutorials and API for more information on them. To declare and initialize an arraylist of strings you do this
    Java Code:
    ArrayList<String> strings = new ArrayList<String>();
