If you really need to use the clone method, I believe you will have to do some manual construct, but otherwise there's the handy System.arraycopy()

No you do not have to. Array implements interface Cloneable.
You just have to call clone on your array:
int firstArray[] = { 0,1, 2, 3, 4 };
int secondArray[] = (int[])firstArray.clone();
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools

It's not a secret anymore!
