    Default Java array and string question

    I have a list of test which I want to place into an array. How would I take text from a file, line by line, and then place each line into its own array element? Something like this:
    Bob Hall
    Cliff Jackson
    Casey Waters

    myArray[0] = Bob Hall, myArray[1] = Cliff Jackson, myArray[2] = Casey Waters

    You'd have to set up a buffered reader then have it collect the data from the file in the line-by-line manner you're wanting and have it in a for loop that counts and just have i as the place in the array and have the line assigned to that place in the array

    Use readLine() of a BufferedReader. It reads until a CR or LF character.
    FileInputStream fstream = new FileInputStream("dir/test.txt");
    DataInputStream in = new DataInputStream(fstream);
    BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(in));
    String str;
    while ((str = br.readLine()) != null) {
    	//add string to myArray
    }
