This example demonstrate about Factory method to create Immutable List in android.

Step 1 − Create a new project in Android Studio, go to File ⇒ New Project and fill all required details to create a new project.

Step 2 − Add the following code to res/layout/activity_main.xml.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"

      String[] array = new String[readOnlylist.size()];
      ArrayAdapter adapter = new ArrayAdapter<String>(this,
