hi java Gurus,
Please some help....

i want to create an array whose size is determined at runtime
i dont want to give the dimensions of the array at declaration.
for eg:
int [] ary;
int index=0;
ary[index]=12
gives Null pointer exception.

Is there any way to declare an array and not mention the size of it and insert values into it...faciliating the size to be determined at runtime.

Thanks
Prasanna

Array are not to be dynamic. You should use an ArrayList or Vectors.
