I have a bean from the instructor and the task is to use the bean to store data that is being retrieved from a jsp then added to an arraylist that is then forwarded to another jsp. There are two values coming from checkboxes on the first jsp form so they are boolean. I don't understand how to store them in the arraylist but it must be possible because the instructor has them as boolean in the bean. I doubt I am loading the arraylist correctly because I have seen other threads where strings and integers can be stored in the same arraylist. The thrid compile error also has to do with the arraylist, I thought .add was inherited .
