Description:

This example gives how to shuffle elements in the ArrayList. By calling Collections.shuffle() method you can shuffle the content of the ArrayList. Everytime you call shuffle() method, it generates different order of output.


Code:
package com.java2novice.arraylist;

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.Collections;

public class MyArrayListShuffle {

	public static void main(String a[]){
		ArrayList<String> list = new ArrayList<String>();
		list.add("Java");
		list.add("Cric");
		list.add("Play");
		list.add("Watch");
		list.add("Glass");
		list.add("Movie");
		list.add("Girl");
		
		Collections.shuffle(list);
		System.out.println("Results after shuffle operation:");
		for(String str: list){
			System.out.println(str);
		}
		
		Collections.shuffle(list);
		System.out.println("Results after shuffle operation:");
		for(String str: list){
			System.out.println(str);
		}
	}
}

Prevent a method from being overridden
By specifying final keyword to the method you can avoid overriding in a subcalss. Similarlly one can use final at class level to prevent creating subclasses.
