Introduction

The java.util.Arrays class contains a static factory that allows arrays to be viewed as lists.Following are the important points about Arrays:

  • This class contains various methods for manipulating arrays (such as sorting and searching).

  • The methods in this class throw a NullPointerException if the specified array reference is null.
