Native arrays versus java.util.Array

Is java.util.Array a wrapper object for native arrays
like int[].class ? When should I be using java.util.Array ?
What are its benefits (if any) when compared to native arrays
- other than the fact that it can be interchangeable with the List interface from the Collection framework ?
Thanks
Pho
