indexed values in the correct order

I have a problem that is confusing me. In my JSP I'm using indexed properties with an array index in the end of the input name, like name[0], name[1], name[2] and so on.

i'm accessing it in my form bean the common way by using bean utils method

setName(int index, String inputString) {

nameList is a LinkedList of Strings.

The problem is that the values are saved in the wrong order so that in my jsp name[0] is "Alpha", name[1] is "Beta" and name[2] "Gamma" but when i iterate over the list later the results are "Beta", "Gamma", "Alpha" or something like that.

This is really bad 'cause i need to save the properties in the correct order they are in the jsp.

Is there a simple solution to this?

Thanks in advance, Erik

There should not be any order problem , because the LinkedList implements the Deque interface. Still give it just try to change it from LinkedList to ArrayList class !

found the solution the moment i submitted

I use ArrayList instead of LinkedList an then access the index directly.

public void setName(int index, String inputString) {
while (index >= nameList.size()) {
nameList.add(new String());
this.nameList.set(index, inputString);

yo Sagar,

maybe deque is the problem (i thought it would be queue) but i also tried PriorityQueue and it didn't work correctly
