      // create an empty Vector vec with an initial capacity of 4      
      Vector vec = new Vector(4);

      // use add() method to add elements in the vector
      vec.add(4);
      vec.add(3);
      vec.add(2);
      vec.add(3);
      vec.add(2);
      vec.add(3);

      /** let us get the index of 3
       * starting search from 2nd index
       */
      System.out.println("Index of 3 :"+vec.indexOf(3,2));
