ok...i add value at - list.add(343); -
and "itTemp" was added value 343 to, too, but why and how to avoid?
how i could possily prevent this from happening?


boolean b = true;<br />System.out.println ("I believe in Java.<br />Java will make my dream come " + b);

Try List tempList = new ArrayList(list);

At this point, tempList and list both reference the exact same ArrayList object. You don't actually have two lists, but two references to one list. If you want something added to one list but not another, you first need to have two lists to work with.
