    Default Is it possible to set entries from a database into an ArrayList?

    So, basically, what I'd like for this to do is display the entirety of the catalog (currently, there are 48 entries) from my items database and make it possible to select an item, which will then be stored in a cart. My problem currently is that I don't know how to select an item from that catalog, though I'm having a few other issues as well. There are other pieces of code that I can post if it helps.

    This is from my main menu.

    Java Code:
    	System.out.println("Welcome to!");
    		System.out.println("1. Browse Catalog");
    		System.out.println("2. Register");
    		System.out.println("3. Log in");
    		System.out.println("4. Forgot Password/Username");
    		System.out.println("5. Quit");
    		System.out.print("\nEnter your choice: ");
    		choice = sc.numInput();
    			// Choose an option
    			switch (choice) {
    			case 1:

    And this is from my Catalog class.

    Java Code:
    		try {
    			// Connects to the items database
    			conn = DriverManager.getConnection(
    					"jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/items", "root", "root");
    			// Connects to the users database
    			String sql = ("SELECT idItems, Itemname,Itemprice, Itemrating, ItemGenre FROM items");
    			PreparedStatement prest = conn.prepareStatement(sql);
    			ResultSet rs = prest.getResultSet();
    			System.out.println("B = Blu-ray, D = DVD, 3DB = 3D Blu-ray \n");
    			while ( {
    				int idItemsVal = rs.getInt("idItems");
    				String itemNameVal = rs.getString("Itemname");
    				int itemPriceVal = rs.getInt("Itemprice");
    				String itemRatingVal = rs.getString("ItemRating");
    				String itemGenreVal = rs.getString("ItemGenre");
    				System.out.println("" + idItemsVal + ". " + itemNameVal + ",\n"
    						+ itemGenreVal + "\n" + itemRatingVal + "\n$"
    						+ itemPriceVal + "\n");
    			} // Gets the int and String values for each item and prints them
    				// out.
    		catch (ClassNotFoundException | SQLException e) {

    Create a class that encapsulates the fields of interest, then construct instances of that class while iterating over the ResultSet and add them to a List.
