Java One Dimensional Arrays

One dimensional array is a list of same typed variables. To create an array, first you must declare an array variable of required type, the syntax is given below:

type variable-name[];


int account_numbers[];

To allocate memory or create array object the syntax is given below:

variable-name = new type[size of the array];


account_numbers = new int[10];

You must specify the size of the array during creating object.

After this statement, account_numbers will refer to 10 integers, and assigned to 0. You can access any element by index, array index starts with 0 and ends with (array length-1). We can assign array values as given below:

account_numbers[0] = 1016;
account_numbers[1] = 449;
account_numbers[2] = 1015;

The below line displays the value stored at index 1.


We can combine declaration of an array with allocation of array as given below:

int account_numbers[] = new int[10];

Arrays can be initialized when they are declaring as given below:

int account_numbers[] = {12,34,56,12,78,98,34};

ServletOuptputStream Vs PrintWriter
ServletOutputStream: ServletResponse.getOutputStream() returns a ServletOutputStream suitable for writing binary data in the response. The servlet container does not encode the binary data, it sends the raw data as it is.

PrintWriter: ServletResponse.getWriter() returns PrintWriter object which sends character text to the client. The PrintWriter uses the character encoding returned by getCharacterEncoding(). If the response's character encoding has not been specified then it does default character encoding.
