Vectors vs Arrays

P: n/a
Hello.

Can anyone please suggest some good tutorial links where Java Vectors
and Arrays are explained and compared?

I'm a proficient programmer but fairly new to Java. Whilst I understand
arrays I don't fully understand Vectors and when to use them.

Many thanks.

You can Google the GROUPS for Java Vectors vs Arrays

I found a few good conversations out there.

Some other posters have already given you links, but a one sentence
summary might be that arrays are fixed-length, while Vectors are
variable-lengthed. I'm assuming, by the way, that when you say "Arrays", you
actually mean "arrays", and not, for example, "ArrayList" (the latter also
being variable-length).
