I have this arrayList and I need to return this as List<TransactionSummary>.

Is there any way I could load the data from arrayList to List<TransactionSummary>

my ArrayList which is called list is doing this


The method parseResultSetRow() is returning TransactionSummary type.

Hope this makes sense.

BTW you probably can tell i am very new at this... so please hlp.

An ArrayList IS-A List. There is no need to convert it. Just return the ArrayList as the List.
