Program: Write an example for Collections.checkedCollection() method.


Collections.checkedCollection() method returns a dynamically typesafe view of the specified collection. Any attempt to insert an element of the wrong type will result in an immediate ClassCastException. Assuming a collection contains no incorrectly typed elements prior to the time a dynamically typesafe view is generated, and that all subsequent access to the collection takes place through the view, it is guaranteed that the collection cannot contain an incorrectly typed element.

package com.java2novice.collections;

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.Collection;
import java.util.Collections;
import java.util.List;

public class MyCheckedCollection {

	public static void main(String a[]){
		List myList = new ArrayList();
		Collection chkList = Collections.checkedCollection(myList, String.class);
		System.out.println("Checked list content: "+chkList);
		//you can add any type of elements to myList object
		//you cannot add any type of elements to chkList object, doing so
		//throws ClassCastException
		chkList.add(10); //throws ClassCastException

Checked list content: [one, two, three, four]

What is wrapper class?
Everything in java is an object, except primitives. Primitives are int, short, long, boolean, etc. Since they are not objects, they cannot return as objects, and collection of objects. To support this, java provides wrapper classes to move primitives to objects. Some of the wrapper classes are Integer, Long, Boolean, etc.
