Those names such as "[I" and "[java.lang.String" are the internal names of "int[]" and "String[]". Paragraph 4.3 of the Java Virtual Machine Specification explains how these names work. For example, "[" means it's an array and "I" means "int".

The classes for arrays are things that are built-in into the compiler. You will not find a Java source file or *.class file anywhere for those classes.

Bhagirathi,

I broke up the long line in your code. Please don't put very long lines inside code tags (I suggest you give the UseCodeTags page another read).

Thanks

Winston


Isn't it funny how there's always time and money enough to do it WRONG?
