Array of ArrayLists Possible?

I am trying to make an Array of ArrayLists...
Since I have 3 ArrayLists I want to make I thought it would be something like this...

ArrayList [] ReadyList = new ArrayList[3]();

So that I can make calls like this:

or ReadyList[1].get(x);
or ReadyList[2].get(x);

If you're curious, the 3 arrays are supposed to represent events of priority 0, 1, and 2. If you know how I can do this I would really appreciate it. Thanks a bunch!

Thanks a bunch! Worked like a charm... Now I just gotta deal with Java.lang.StackOverflowError... Possibly the greater of the two evils...

Better still, use List reference types:
