public class ArrayListDemo {
   public static void main(String args[]) {

   // create an empty array list with an initial capacity
   ArrayList<Integer> arrlist = new ArrayList<Integer>(5);

   // use add method to add elements
   arrlist.add(10);
   arrlist.add(50);
   arrlist.add(30);
	
   // this will increase the capacity of the ArrayList to 15 elements
   arrlist.ensureCapacity(15);

   // let us print all the elements available in list
