Java Question

initializing a boolean array in java

I have this code

public static Boolean freq[] = new Boolean[Global.iParameter[2]];
freq[Global.iParameter[2]] = false;


could someone tell me what exactly i'm doing wrong here and how would i correct it? I just need to initialize all the array elements to Boolean false.
thank you

Answer

I just need to initialize all the array elements to Boolean false.

Either use boolean[] instead so that all values defaults to false:

boolean[] array = new boolean[size];

Or use Arrays#fill() to fill the entire array with Boolean.FALSE:

Boolean[] array = new Boolean[size];
Arrays.fill(array, Boolean.FALSE);

Also note that the array index is zero based. The freq[Global.iParameter[2]] = false; line as you've there would cause ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException. To learn more about arrays in Java, consult this basic Oracle tutorial.
