I've made a vectors within vectors, and now trying to initialise it, I just can't get it to work.

The problem is in the bold part, PLEASE help me out!!


import javax.swing.*;
import java.util.Vector;

public class Teams
//instance vars
private Vector<Vector <Object>> team1;
private Vector<Vector <Object>> team2;
private Vector<Vector <Object>> team3;
private Vector<Vector <Object>> team4;

public Teams()
team1 = new Vector<Vector <Object>>();
team2 = new Vector<Vector <Object>>();
team3 = new Vector<Vector <Object>>();
team4 = new Vector<Vector <Object>>();

FileRead("team1.txt", team1);
FileRead("team2.txt", team2);
FileRead("team3.txt", team3);
FileRead("team4.txt", team4);


public void FileRead(String fileName, Vector teamVector)
// Open the file that is the first
// command line parameter
FileInputStream fstream = new FileInputStream(fileName);
// Get the object of DataInputStream
DataInputStream in = new DataInputStream(fstream);
BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(in));
String strLine;
//Read File Line By line
//int counter = 0;
while ((strLine = br.readLine()) != null)
Vector<Object> v = new Vector<Object>();
String[] values = strLine.split(",");
for (String str : values)
// System.out.println(str);
//Close the input stream
catch (Exception e)
//Catch exception if any
System.err.println("Error: " + e.getMessage());

public void initialiseTeams(Vector teamVector)
Vector v = teamVector.elementAt(0).clone();
Defender def1 = new Defender(int teamVector.get(1).get(0), StringteamVector.get(1).get(1), int teamVector.get(1).get(2), int teamVector.get(1).(get3), int teamVector.get(1).get(4));

Please do not post the same question more than once.

I agree. Here's the link:
