The following are top 10 methods for Java Array. They are the most voted questions from stackoverflow.

0. Decalre an array

String[] aArray = new String[5];
String[] bArray = {"a","b","c", "d", "e"};
String[] cArray = new String[]{"a","b","c","d","e"};


1. Print an array in Java

int[] intArray = { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 };
String intArrayString = Arrays.toString(intArray);
 
// print directly will print reference value
System.out.println(intArray);
// [I@7150bd4d
 
System.out.println(intArrayString);
// [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

2. Create ArrayList from array

String[] stringArray = { "a", "b", "c", "d", "e" };
ArrayList<String> arrayList = new ArrayList<String>(Arrays.asList(stringArray));
System.out.println(arrayList);
// [a, b, c, d, e]

3. Check if an array contains a certain value

String[] stringArray = { "a", "b", "c", "d", "e" };
boolean b = Arrays.asList(stringArray).contains("a");
System.out.println(b);
// true

4. Concatenate two arrays

int[] intArray = { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 };
int[] intArray2 = { 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 };
// Apache Commons Lang library
int[] combinedIntArray = ArrayUtils.addAll(intArray, intArray2);

5. Declare array inline

method(new String[]{"a", "b", "c", "d", "e"});

6. Joins the elements of the provided array into a single String

// containing the provided list of elements
// Apache common lang
String j = StringUtils.join(new String[] { "a", "b", "c" }, ", ");
System.out.println(j);
// a, b, c

7. Covnert ArrayList to Array

String[] stringArray = { "a", "b", "c", "d", "e" };
ArrayList<String> arrayList = new ArrayList<String>(Arrays.asList(stringArray));
String[] stringArr = new String[arrayList.size()];
arrayList.toArray(stringArr);
for (String s : stringArr)
System.out.println(s);

8. Convert Array to Set

Set<String> set = new HashSet<String>(Arrays.asList(stringArray));
System.out.println(set);
//[d, e, b, c, a]

9. Reverse an array

int[] intArray = { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 };
ArrayUtils.reverse(intArray);
System.out.println(Arrays.toString(intArray));
//[5, 4, 3, 2, 1]

10. Remove element of an array

int[] intArray = { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 };
int[] removed = ArrayUtils.removeElement(intArray, 3);//create a new array
System.out.println(Arrays.toString(removed));

One more – convert int to byte array

byte[] bytes = ByteBuffer.allocate(4).putInt(8).array();
 
for (byte t : bytes) {
System.out.format("0x%x ", t);
}
In addition, do you know  what arrays look like in memory ?
