Append all elements of other Collection to ArrayList in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

The elements of a Collection can be appended at the end of the ArrayList using the method java.util.ArrayList.addAll(). This method takes a single parameter i.e. the Collection whose elements are added to the ArrayList.

A program that demonstrates this is given as follows −

Example

 Live Demo

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.Vector;
public class Demo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      ArrayList<String> aList = new ArrayList<String>();
      aList.add("John");
      aList.add("Sally");
      aList.add("Harry");
      aList.add("Martha");
      aList.add("Susan");
      Vector<String> vec = new Vector<String>();
      vec.add("Peter");
      vec.add("Michael");
      vec.add("Jenna");
      aList.addAll(vec);
      System.out.println("The ArrayList elements are: " + aList);
   }
}

Output

The ArrayList elements are: [John, Sally, Harry, Martha, Susan, Peter, Michael, Jenna]

Now let us understand the above program.

First the ArrayList is defined and elements are added using the ArrayList.add() method. A code snippet which demonstrates this is as follows −

ArrayList<String> aList = new ArrayList<String>();
aList.add("John");
aList.add("Sally");
aList.add("Harry");
aList.add("Martha");
aList.add("Susan");

Then the vector is defined and elements are added. After that the ArrayList.addAll() method is used to append all the vector elements at the end of the arrayList. Then the ArrayList elements are displayed. A code snippet which demonstrates this is as follows −

Vector<String> vec = new Vector<String>();
vec.add("Peter");
vec.add("Michael");
vec.add("Jenna");
aList.addAll(vec);
System.out.println("The ArrayList elements are: " + aList);
