What do you mean by three different elements? Three different kinds of objects? You can use an Object array to hold any kind of objects, like
Object[] myArray = { "A string", Color.RED, new Point(1, 2) };
But if you're going to count on a certain object being in a certain position (and I know that's what you're going to do!) then don't use an array -- define a new class to hold the objects as member variables.
