It is optional for a class that implements the Collection interface to allow objects to be the removed. If it doesn't want to allow objects to be removed, then it's implementation of the remove method should just throw an UnsupportedOperationException. Obviously the object that Arrays.asList returns has chosen to do this.

Arrays.asList(s) returns unmodifiable collection. Therefore you need to use other collection:
