Convert String To ArrayList Example Java Program


Definition

A string is traditionally a sequence of characters, either as a literal constant or as some kind of variable. The latter may allow its elements to be mutated and the length changed, or it may be fixed (after creation). A string is generally understood as a data type and is often implemented as an array of bytes (or words) that stores a sequence of elements. A string may also denote more general arrays or other sequence (or list) data types and structures.

Syntax

List Variable_name = Arrays.asList(Variable_name1);

		System.out.println("As a list:");
		for (String e : list)  {  
			System.out.println(""+e);  
		}  
	}
