Me using the ArrayList library from Java for O.O programming, but i am not quite sure one 3 little things

1.Can i assign the data into a specific slot E.g "banana" a string into slot 3?

2.How do i add a data, do i use "add.xXxX"? or use "set", in O.O prgramming environment?

3.How do i recall the data from a specific slot? Using the example in #1.

Waiting for reply & Thanx in advance

Refer to the API for ArrayList...

In particular, note the methods:
  • add(int index, E element)
  • get(int index)
