Hi all im new here and pretty new to java to. I am just working through examples and trying things out for my self.

What i wanted to do was read a text file that has records in them seperated by a newline and pass them into an ArrayList.

So far i have created an Accounts class that looks like this




After that i have created a class called ReadFile that looks like this



so what i wanted to know is how can i pass what i have read from the txt file into an ArrayList as Objects?? can any one help me?

My understanding is that i would create an arraylist like



???

Yes, you would do something like this (I am assuming your loop is working, if not message again):


BTW, you should name your class as Account instead of Accounts, classes generally represent single entity, although you can have n instances (objects).
