Nothing gets added to the ArrayList... the size doesn't increase after the add statement within the switch and the values added don't show when I print out the contents of the ArrayList. Don't know how to explain it any other way... Removing parenthesis from around the case values did not fix it .
Edit: I've tried removing the switch and using an if instead, but it does not make a difference.
Edit 2: I figured out the problem was that I was instantiating the ArrayList after everytime I tried to add an appointment within the switch.
