hello to all .
as we know, in collection interface we have a class vector and we usually create a vector like that
Vector v = new Vector();
which in turn returns and array v[] of capacity of 10 elements and its type is Object.
how is it possible that we are defining an simple object and in turn it is converting it into an array object.
what i understand that in vector class constructor , there will be some type of code which in turn convert v int v[].
can somebody explain me, how to do that.
i have an idiea of Vector construct like that
Vector() {
Object [] v = new Object [10];
or any use of " this" key word.
i am totally confused.
thanks in advance

Why don't you just go LOOK? In the jdk they include a src.jar that you can open with any ZIP utility.
From the file (minus the JavaDoc stuff that you can see in the API)
