List creating

Hello greenhorns

Well I'm really not getting this one, and I am sorry that I do not understand objects very well yet.

I want to create List or Map or what you'd recommend, that I will return
I should be able to store there enum and array

I have been trying to use List and Map and everything.

I tried to use EnumMap and put there array:

I seem to be getting always problem like this when I try to put or add objects to objects.

I hope you understand what I'm trying to do

Actually I don't understand what you are trying to do. You use an EnumMap when the keys of the map are going to be an Enum type. But then you write code which tries to use an int as a key. That isn't an Enum. So why did you do that?

Can you show us:
- the declaration of the EnumMap
- the call to put
- the declaration of the objects you put in there

It's weird but I got it all after I did read Paul Clapham's comment (yesterday nothing seemed to work).

Created map where I have array and enum, it seems to work very well.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
