String and Array

I would like to be able to use the String containing the 26 letters of the alphabet in a JList. For now I have to put them in a String array. Is there any way of not having to declare a String array and using the String of letters in a JList?

One possibility is to create a class that implements the ListModel interface. For convenience, you might want to extend AbstractListModel since it provides default implementations for some of the methods. If you need more information, check the Swing trail in the Java Tutorial (see the link in my sig).

I hope this helps.
