We love to work with arrays because they are simple yet very powerful data structure in Java Language. It is also very intuitive and easy to use. If our needs does not require too much dynamic sizes, then arrays are just fine. But the first problem we encounter in working with arrays is how to fill it with initial values. Specially if the size of an array is created through a variable - meaning variable size that we don't know initially. And say we need to initialize the entire thing with a specific value, or only a portion of the array. The Arrays.fill() method is a good fit for this need. In this post we try to explore how to use Java Arrays.fill() method in different scenarios.
We love to use arrays as it is a very simple data structure to create and manipulate. In fact, such data structure exists in much older programming languages. Sometimes we just don't need the bells and whistles of much more feature rich collection classes. In this post, we explore one array manipulation in case we have an array of numeric values. We will give examples below on how to Sum and Array In Java.
When we are dealing with a handful of data of the same type, we can use a different variable for each. But if we are working with arbitrarily more numbers of data of same type, array can be a good choice because it is a simple data structure to work with. List or Set is also a good choice, but arrays is much simpler to manipulate and work with. We explore below how do we work with Java Char Array. We will check different common scenario we encounter when working with char arrays.
Although a very old and dated data structure, array is still a very popular data structure to work with a collection of objects. This is because manipulation of arrays is very simple to learn and use. The only issue is it lacks advance features than can be found in the Collections API. For this tutorial, we will show how to Add elements to an Array in Java.
Byte Array is a convenient data structure that has many use cases. One scenario is when serializing some object to a file, and so we need to convert object to byte array when we write to file, and convert back from byte array to objects when we read from file. Another scenario is when sending data from one machine to another. Complex data structure is converted to a byte array before sending over the network, and on the other end the byte array is converted back to the original data structure. One of the simplest type of Object that we can convert to and from byte array is a String. This post will show how to convert Java Byte Array To String that can be applied to the use cases mentioned earlier.
String is just a staple of most programming languages. It represents a sequence of characters into one data structure. It is a very convenient way to store many types of things in memory or in the database. An array on the other hand is one of the most simple way to represent multiple values. It is simpler that Classes such as List or Set because it can also be found in older programming language such as C/C++ or Pascal. It is only natural that we sometimes want to convert a String into an array of Characters for easier manipulation later. Below are some ways on how we can Convert a String to Char Array in Java .
Object is the root class of all classes in Java. Every class that we use or declare in Java has Object as a super class when traced to the top. All objects, including primitive wrappers, implements the method of the Object class. Array on the other hand is a convenient data structure for holding multiple values with the same class or interface. This post will discuss some caveats about Java Array Of Objects.
Strings and Arrays are two of the most popular data type in Java and in other popular language. String are able to represent a series of characters that is viewed as a single entity. While arrays are used to hold multiple values in the most simple way. But how do we convert a String like "One,Two,Three" into an array splitting into 3 different words or string? Below are some examples on in Java on how to split String into Array.
Array is the most basic way to represent a group of data with unknown size. Collections has been popular in recent years but arrays will always have a good use case because of it's simplicity. But before we could use an array, we should now how to create an instance. Below are some examples on how we can create array in Java.
Programmers usually want to use arrays because it can hold arbitrary number of items, depending on how we created the array object. Most of the things we wish to do with arrays, like searching or sorting, needs us to know it's size. Because we usually manipulate arrays using loop, we need to know the size of an array to know how many times we need to loop. We will show how to find Java Array Size and give some examples on how to use it.
